Linking Connecticut Crack with Fingers On A Seasca...


The route follows a series of discontinuous finger cracks.
Delicate footwork marks the crux of the rotue as you traverse left to right between cracks.


Several meters left of "Old Town" and immediately left of "London Bridges." Look for the obvious, discontinuous cracks (like the claw marks of a house-sized cat).

Tiny and small nuts & cams up to 2-in for the finishing crack.
2-Bolt top anchor with rappel rings.

While not regarded as being as classic as "Old Town" or other nearby routes, "Connecticut Crack" was the most memorable climb at the Precipice on a day when we climbed more than half a dozen routes. It remains one of my favorite routes to date.

Don't miss this one!

This thing is sweet! The changeover is some awesome 6-12 feet of really really fun climbing. This route has a nice rest ledge before the business, so up and down climbing to place pro is a breeeeze.

I think the name is Connecticut Cracks with an S, Cracks, as there are a series of discontinuous cracks.

Anyway this is a fine route, if this is your limit get on it and take some falls, I did. After all you drove all that way.
