The start


A classic route for grade and length, but maybe not the best place to take a rank beginner as the crux is a traverse where gear could be either hard to place or remove.

Go up for about 15' clip a bolt (no longer a sus carrot), traverse L for about 15', then straight up to fixed anchors at the top.

Descend by rapping from the anchor chains.


Start at the right side of the NW face of CC, the face furthest from camp.


Standard light Araps rack. Use long runners judiciously to avoid rope drag and hanging the 2nd out to dry.
