Description 

Thinner than Crack 1 and not as broken or fractured, Crack 2 yields good fingers the entire climb. Start either direct or by climbing up the blocky start to Crack 1 and traversing left on bigger-than-they-look sandstone nubbins - you'll appreciate the stickyness of the unvarnished lower part of this climb soon enough! Lead or TR this climb and use the Crack 1 anchors.

The photo below shows a portion of the slab just right of Crack 1 - no features, no crack, very dicey. Give it a try on TR and see if you can stick!


Protection 

Small gear (wires, RPs, cams to #1 camalot). Easy to TR from the Crack 1 anchors (a 10' traverse along the top of the slab).

Thinner than its neighbors, this climb will make you focus on your feet.
