Very nice and fun crack. The last time I pulled this crack, got caught in a bad thunderstorm. Had to lower and run for shelter. Came back the next day to retrieve my pro.
Watch the weather it comes in quickly!!!!

The FA on this route isn't really known. We always assumed it was done many years earlier but during the era when many of the Point Routes were going in ~1990 Arno Ilgner Down Soloed it one day to get off the point thus the name A.I.D.S. Crack.
