Description

Lots 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.

Getting There

First hike up on the usual trails to Basilisk wall, then walk WNW horizontally along the base of the low cliffs about 650 feet / 200 meters, passing by the Army Strong sector.
