Second Second ascent by: fraggle76 on 2011-05-14 (View Climbing Log)

4 out of 5 stars 2nd and 3rd pitches

We did the first pitch of CCK, then after a lead fall on the runout section on the second pitch of CCK we moved left and finished Updraft.

Probably the best 5.5 I've ever climbed. The first pitch looked super dirty, but the second and third were awesome climbs.
