C monster. Looks adventurous!


This is the first and tallest route at C Bluff. I have climbed the first pitch, but not the full length route. pitch 1, The Birthday pitch, is very enjoyable and will be posted independently. A full accent of C Monster would be pretty adventurous, involving lots of easy, run out face climbing. Check out a well written and lengthy trip report:

This description was taken directly off the FA topo:

P 1: 5.9; Start - meadow area right of a big overhang. Climb up to a left facing corner/crack system, belay in bushes/overlap 150’

P 2: 5.7; Climb the overlap and up the face, passing rap slings on right, belay at a oak tree. 50’

P 3: 5.8+; move up at the ease in the overlap. face climb straight up then angle left to a tree beneath a steep crack. 60’

P 4: 5.9: Up the crack to a stance then angle left to a corner/crack system, follow this then move right onto the face and up, belay at the anchors. 160’

P 5: 5.7: Face climb up to a ledge then angle left up to a white streak, climb up to a tree system near the top of the wall. 160’

Rap rings at the top of the first pitch, other than that, it's up to you
