The Egg Climbing Routes

Little Cottonwood Canyon

The white granite rock found in LCC is a big contrast from the shale and quartzite found in BCC.
The granite in LCC was actually under the quartzite, in the strata hierarchy,
but was upheaved from the continental plates crushing into each other.

Notes: climbing up under Contact Buttress wasn't that fun,
thick bushwhacking and spiderweb bearding prevailed.
There is also a bit of poison oak hurdling.

LCC entrance viewed from the northwest, notice the long finger-like ridges.
The closest ridge is quartzite, like BCC. The rest are all granite, the furthest is Perla's Ridge.
