Description Suggest change

This route stands in stark contrast to the overhanging, much harder, bolted lines at the cliff... and while I realize CCC is predominantly a sport area, this was just too natural a line to stick bolts into. I suppose it could've been climbed before given the abundance of natural gear, but considering the tremendous amount of cleaning required, it is highly unlikely. Take the grade with a grain of salt.

Start up on a slab with some chossy rock at the base; the rock improves the higher you get. Climb the obvious, slightly overhanging, corner crack, using good stems and jams, to a good rest at a jug on the vertical wall above. Continue up cracks (fist size gear) to a short traverse left under a bulge. Climb up the lefthand face past a lone bolt to an anchor at ~ 90'.

Note: the rock was very exfoliatong on the lower half, and it seems to have cleaned up a good bit, but I'm sure there is more to come. The upper face is generally very good stone, albeit still a dirty in spots. All in all, the route is a good natural line that I think will clean up well.

Location Suggest change

It is on the far right side. Scramble up a short slab or gully to find this right-facing corner.

Protection Suggest change

A standard crack rack up to #3. You could place a #4, but it's not needed if you have doubles of other sizes.
