Description 

Climb #16: Hi-C (5.8, 85’, R) Three distinct cruxes. Start directly below the right-hand crack that goes up through overlap. Climb up to crack through the overlap and head up the lower angle slab until you’re directly below the left “C”. Head straight up the face and find what little protection there is until you get up into a stance in the “C” and can get a piece in. When you reach the top of the C’s, pull over the top and head up and right to the tree anchor above Swamp Crack. This is a run-out lead at the crux. It can be done
on TR though a bit tricky to set up with a directional or two.

Protection 

Standard trad rack.

Was out at Love Gap today and noticed daylight behind the righthand flake on "Hi C" (route #16 in the guide). It might have been there before but I don't remember it. Take care if you get on that and don't pull on it or plug a cam behind it. Stay on the left "C" and put pro in it if leading. Looks like the whole thing could come down - maybe tomorrow (...or 100 years from now). Who knows. Climber beware!
