Description

Route C: Somewhat contrived even though it is a crack line. Stay off Route B that is two feet to your left as you climb the crack. After about 10 feet it eases considerably.

Susan's Notes: Bring some .5"-2.5" gear. This route has it's own anchors up and right of the crack. Or just top rope from the closed shut anchors to your left or route B should you choose.

Location

Obvious crack and left facing corner in the middle of the pillar.

Protection

Medium sized pro, or top rope from neighborhing routes.

Crack is fun enough, needs gardening down low as the bushes make getting established harder than it should be. If you're determined to tick the crag, you may as well do this one too. Dec 2, 2012
