No Pro.


Start up the thin crack just left of the wide crack on the main face of Down Under. Make a few delicate moves up the face on thin features. The wide crack on the right is out.


This is just left of the wide crack to the left of the main face of Down Under. Approaching from the west, follow the crag past ball of confusion to a obvious, mossy wide crack. No Pro is just left of that.


NO BOLTING PLEASE! This looks like it would make a fun sport line, but until the elders of Cape Ann have ok'd it, leave the drill at home. It would also kill the name.... TR anchors were placed 2012.

Edit: Thanks for the hard work, Chris. Things are coming along nicely with the area setup.

I scrubbed that whole face 8 years ago. It's amazing how quick things get green again. I have an email into the admin for the site to try and consolidate Cape Ann as well as getting Red Rocks area sorted out. Here's to trying!

By the way.... I was of the opinion that the wide crack is actually "No Pro," not the face next to it. The crack is flaring and really takes no pro.... hence the name? Where is Herb when you need him!?!

"No Pro" it is. "Balls of Confusion" is the wide crack just to the right.

After much help and much cleaning... Down Under is on its way, and this climb (No Pro) is going to be a classic.
