BETA PHOTO: The NCS Route follows the yellow line to the top.
The NCS route climbs the center of the Northern Cave Slab. Start below a shallow, left-facing corner flanked by two good sized trees. Climb along the left side of the corner (a small stopper or two for protection, but otherwise pretty sparse) to a large block below the upper section (good cam placement here) to the right of a chimney. The crux is moving from the lower block into the grove on the upper block. Swing over to the upper block and continue to the top. There is another good stopper placement on this upper block. The top section is a little dirty. The NCS Route provides easy access to the climbs starting on top of the slab and Ancient Way.
The obvious line on the Northern Cave Slab.
3-4 medium-sized stoppers and a medium-sized cam.
