Description

Climb the straight up crack 5 feet right of Casada Noodle Soup. Pull through the bulge on good buckets. Tricky climbing where the wall steepens at the top. Crack is clean in good rock, though some pockets higher up may be sandy.

Location

C1 is the crack about 5 feet right of Casada Noodle Soup. The first ten feet climb a flared corner through a bulge. At the top of the crack you can move left easily to the anchor bolts of Casada.

Protection

Protection in the flared corner at the start is tricky; hint, good red camalot in a horizontal crack out left. Good small pro in crack above. Near the top you can place a purple camalot in a two handed pocket.

I led this and three other cracks at Chicken Little on October 25, 2017. I don't claim these as first ascents but simply want to record and describe them. Having no cosmic names in mind and knowing these routes will not be popular I've simply named them C1 ... C4, where C means crack. If I do any cracks left of C1 they'll be given negative numbers.
