Route: East Face (<span class='rateHueco'>V0</span> <span class='rateFont'>4</span>)

April 20, 2014 - 4:29pm
On the right side of the east face, there is a jug low on the wall. Start there and climb up the face on small holds to the top of the boulder. There are fun balance moves in the middle. The topout is a bit of a reach.

The route starts at a large jug at the bottom left side of the boulder. Traverse to your right around an awkward bulge. This is the hard part. Once around the bulge climb straight up the face. There are only two holds before the top so it is pretty straight forward. Fun face moves.

Im sure this route has been done before but I had a lot of fun on it.

Event on May 31, 2014: Rotary Park Graffiti Removal and Adopt a Crag

April 15, 2014 - 1:04pm
Saturday, May 31, 2014

NCCC is proud to announce a Trail Day/Graffiti Cleanup at Rotary Park on Saturday, May 31st. This is a re-start on our 2013 fall trail day goals that unfortunately got snowed out last year. We need plenty of people to paint over existing graffiti and help manage social trails. We plan on a full day of work starting at 9am and ending at 3pm. Please try and carpool if possible because parking is limited. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen, everything else will be provided. We will have great giveaways and an after-party is in the works.

Our primary goals for 2014:1. Using Taginator to remove Graffiti on established rock climbs, i.e. "Right Eliminator, Bolt Wall/Cat's Eye, Pinch Penny Boulder"2. Painting over the "420 Cave" at the North End with light green and tan paint.3. Continuing to manage social trails4. Trash pickup

Two variations exist. The left variation may go slightly easier than the right.

Left (North)- Start to the left of the roof, climb to the undercling / overhang, surmount it (crux), and go left around the arete into a crack. Follow it to the top.

Right (South)- Start with a bouldery roof move (crux) into a crack. Continue past some broken blocky rock into another crack and follow it to the top.
