Description [Suggest Change]

The C-Section is named as such because at the start of the area, coming from south to north, there is a "C" spray painted on a pillar where a somewhat obvious break from one area to the next occurs. I named it this before realizing there are letters and numbers spray painted all over this crag.

I have a C-Section story to share about my second son's birth, but this area is not about that. It is about having fun with the discovery of the letter C and all the routes in this area have a C word in their name.

This area contains the tallest climbs at the Hill, reaching 60+ feet in height. It is in the middle of the crescent moon shaped crag and therefore has the shortest approach from road to rock.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Park in the gravel pit 0.8 miles up Nelson Road after turning from Crane Lake Rd. Walk north along Nelson Road for about 0.5 miles and turn right on the first License Plate Path marked with plate PND-923.

The C-Section has two sub areas; the Lower C-Section and the Upper C-Section. As you follow PND-923, there will be a second plate, (insert), that marks the right turn on the trail to the Upper C-Section. Stay to the left and you'll walk out right into the Lower.
