Description

The climbing on this route is fun and well-protected, but unfortunately it's a bit grungy and not of the best rock quality. That said, the holds all seem trustworthy, and it's a welcome break from the slab climbing at the crag. Perhaps it is a bit on the soft side for 5.9.

Location

This is the leftmost bolted line at Crack of Noon. It is just left of an obvious roof.

Protection

Bolts to a bolted anchor. This shares an anchor with CNC 2.

Climbed this route on Saturday. To be honest, it felt more like a 5.8. It is not sustained. The crux is about mid-height and consists of pulling out of a short dihedral and out onto the face on the climber's right, on mostly very good holds. It is a steep but short crux. Aug 18, 2014
