Below the crux

Description 

This climb has fun, varied moves. The initial crack is harder than it looks, and the roof is easier.

Climb the crack (harder than it looks, crux) to the large roof. Exit right, then up to top.

Walk off left to the Uberfall Descent.


Location 

Begin at a crack in short face right of Boston.

Protection 

Standard Gunks rack. G.

I found this to be much easier than CC. Lots of gear, fun moves and a great exit under the roof.

Fun route, very tricky to rappel clean if your belayer or second can't make it. All the holds are there, just have to go for it!

Careful not to grab the big loose block in the niche under the big roof.

Otherwise, a great short route that gets sun in the afternoon.

This also felt easier to me than CC Route - style preference I guess?
