Description:

5.9+ do not scramble up to the old capitalist crag but scramble downhill to a ledge system that cuts the cliff ascending up and left. Scramble up for ~30 feet to the base. It is a good idea to use the low first bolt as a belay anchor on the ledge. It has been said by many that it is the best 5.9 in CCC. 100 feet

5 out of 5 stars CLASSIC 5.9

This is one of the best 5.9's I have been on! Great footwork climbing leads into an awesome crack layback move. Super fun climb!

4 out of 5 stars It gets tricky up top

I could not feel my fingers after this one due to the cold. Easy climbing leads to a layback crack that is pretty sustained. Fun route that focuses on good footwork.
