The route is located on the large left portion of C Bluff and at the bottom the rock ramps. It is the start to C Monster, which ascends the full height of the bluff, mostly on slab. Extremely good laybacking and jamming make this the longest crack on the bluff so far.

P1: 110’ 5.8+ Start behind some trees and face climb straight up to the ledge at the base of the crack (There should probably be a bolt here). Layback though the wide crack to a good rest. Follow the excellent zig-zagging corner crack to it’s end. From here make a thin face move up to the rap anchor.

A 70m rope will just get you to the ground to the left of the route or continue on an adventure up C Monster.
