Description

Exciting and improbable! This line climbs the blank face to the right of the CCK crack finish.

From the GT Ledge at the second pitch of CCK, climb up fairly moderate terrain into a small right-facing corner, right of the CCK Direct line. Exit the corner (5.10, with some spaced gear) up and left to a stance at a deep horizontal. Place your last pieces and step right towards the huge prow, then up the face on very small holds.

This route was originally 5.11c in the Williams guide, but it feels much harder, rivaling many Gunks 5.12 lines. There are rumors of broken holds, but nothing confirmed.

Location

Starts on the GT Ledge by CCK.

Protection

Thin to #2 Camalot.
