|M & M Wall
start off on awesome overhanging jugs (campus moves optional) to a double crack with stemming. getting on top of this off to the right you'll have the option of going left for the 10c or straight up (slightly right) over the bulge for the 11a version. deepest thoughts? i thought this was one of the best routes i did in the area.
its considered to be on the right side of M&M. and to the left of huge pillar that fell off of Power Hitter (you'll see it). also look for campus style moves off the deck leading to two cracks within reach of each other! fun!
4 or 5 bolts to chains. i put pg-13 because if you fell (you wont) clipping the 2nd bolt you'd most likely deck. but like i said you wont.

its not pg13. well protected sport climb. worth knowing that the hand swallowing bucket at the crux was chipped, lame.

The jug was hacked out after the FA when someone (not the CCC FA'er, Matt Kerns) decided to squeeze in a pile just left of CCC. And hey, if you're going to superimpose your masterpiece on other routes, you might as well carve out some new holds for everyone, right? The offending route has since disappeared, but the jug remains, ruining what was once one of the better pure cruxes at Vantage. You can still climb CCC using the original sequence if you stay to right, pretending the jug out left doesn't exist.
Squeeze jobs are an unfortunate fact of life at Vantage; e.g., Blood Blister.

The location of the 2nd bolt made it feel pretty PG-13 to me ...

Someone should glue that flake at the start, or just knock it off the wall. The flake and the block above it are both scarily loose and would really ruin you and your belayers day if they come down on you. That scared me way more than the bolt placement although, until you actually clip the 3rd bolt, you could easily deck from anywhere below that. I thought the sequence to the right and straight through the roof was actually much more natural than the 10c line and flowed great.
