On another topic, I noticed after an ascent of CCK direct last Friday that there is new a rap anchor on the tree at the top of CCK direct. I almost took it down and will still if I'm back there soon, but didn't at the time because I was in a hurry.

This rap anchor sends descending parties straight down CCK and is one of an increasing number of textbook examples of how to ruin popular routes by adding, to people lining up to climb the route, a new set of people rapping down it. There's a Preserve bolted rappel at most a few hundred feet to the North, but you have to know the cliff. (The High E rappel is further north but quite near too.)
