DescriptionLots of interesting steep face climbing, and an obvious crack.
. . (The acronym for the obvious crack gives the name to this sector).
. . Problem for several of the routes is a short crux much harder than the remainder. So if goal is enjoyment of lots of good moves, rather than purity of completion, arrive prepared with a method for "cheating" through those cruxes - (on top-rope usually it's sufficent to "yard" through it by the climber pulling on the belayer's strand of the rope).
. . On the left (NW) side of the Yankee Ramparts East area.
Top-Rope: Access to top of cliff by scrambling up around left side. Tree and rocks can be used as natural anchors with static line or long slings.
warning: The rock around this sector has not been climbed much yet, and much of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.
