Description 

Great area with a lot of fun warmups and a couple more difficult problems. Right next to the road, within walking distance of a campground, yet doesn't see a ton of traffic. Gets its name from the distinctive crack splitting the boulder completely in two, all the way through, which makes for two very different but fun problems. A place to visit for sure.

Getting There 

Drive up left fork about 1 mile. Keep an eye on the right hand side of the road, and the crack boulder will be obvious. If you get to the huge pullout on the left hand side of the road, you've gone too far, but barely. It's within walking distance of this parking area, back down the road less than 1/4 mile.

Fist Crack V0+ 4+  UT : Joe's Valley : ... : Crack Boulder
The boulders namesake crack. This is a stellar crack climb that is perfect for beginners, boulderers that want to give that crazy crack climbing a try, and crusty old guys alike. Tons of fun, you can run laps on this all day and not get bored. Has good feet options for the first half, if you don't feel like jamming your feet in the crack as well. The hardest part is definitely at the top. It's fairly tall, so bring a pad and possibly a spotter....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
