Wikswo on CED
Short route with a bouldery start, most parties only climb the first 30 feet of the first pitch and then TR. The crux of the route is right off of the ground. After about 10 feet there is a corner and crack system. Pull a few moves to reach a ledge with bolts. Or continue up the left facing corner and past a couple ledges unto you reach the spacious Conn's East belay ledge.
Conn's East Direct is located about 30 feet north of Castor and Pollox in a shallow right-facing corner. One can climb about 30 feet or less to a set of rings and rap down or one can climb another 40 feet to the Conn's East ledge and continue up or rap down from there.
Finger tips to hand sized gear, a couple of slings for some rather small trees.
