Pagoda Crack starts in the wide section


59m long crack with lots of fun stemming. A little grainy in parts. Double ropes best or careful runnering of gear needed to reduce rope drag. Belay off 2 bolts on side of pagoda. Rap route with double 60m ropes.


Climbs the long, right-curving crack on the inset wall to the right of the “Pin There…” pinnacles. There is a formation just left of the top of the crack that looks like a Japanese pagoda—sort of. (See "location" section for "Chicken Crack" for more info.)


Include doubles to 3.5"
