BETA PHOTO: Coroner's Crack - Follow the urine and feces infes...
Seasonal Raptor Closures MORE INFO >>>


Coroner's Crack is the small roof crack in between "The Ladder" and "Jerry's Kids". If you enjoy leading on rodent urine-soaked rock with the occasional pocket-o-poo, this is the climb for you. Once you reach the roof (crux), prepare for an arm bar in the crack with loose, flaky feet below. There are some big jugs on top to pull through the loose stuff.


Cams - 0.5 to 2. A #5 cam is key to protecting the finish of the climb.

3 of us climbed this today and actually cleaned it out significantly Albeit the bird shit is still there its not quite as crumbly now. Make sure the belayer is wearing eye protection from all the crap and dirt getting kicked off. The crux was pulling through to the finish in the off width crack. Good stuff.

After a few more climbs and the subsequent cleaning up of loose materials, this may get two stars from me. And yes, at this point in time, eye protection is a good idea.
