Description Suggest change

A hand crack to climb time and time again.

NCCC is the first route you encounter when you get up to the cliff. It doesn't get much more obvious that this--jam the low angle hand crack to the top, passing a large, unstable blocky roof to the right. The crux comes at about 2/3 height where a few high feet and some trust in the friction gods gets you to a bucket and great feet.

For the anchor: Either sling the tree WITH YOUR OWN cordelette and belay your second up, or lower off. (Note: The tree at the top of the route is slung with webbing and rap rings; however, that does NOT mean one should occupy this for the purpose of toproping, nor should you trust its integrity.)

Location Suggest change

RIght in front of you as you get to the cliff...you won't miss it.

Protection Suggest change

A standard rack with some hand size pieces. Cordelette and some lockers for the anchor.
