Tom O., still hoping for Cruise Control to ease of...

Description 

Strenuous and sustained, Cruise Control will have you wondering: where does the 5.8 climbing start?

Starting at an overhang below a right-facing corner, boulder your way up to get established in the corner's hand crack system. Using hand jams and laybacks, follow the crack to the top.

Location 

Starts about 10' right of Special Olympics.

Protection 

Mostly medium gear, up to #2 Camalot or equivalent. Build a gear anchor at the top.

This is a super sandbag; consensus in my crew was something closer to 5.10.

No upgrading please. This is a classic Chattanooga 5.8.
