Jeff on Cracky Face.


This is a thin crack that is just to the immediate left of S Crack.


We used cams in a crack and webbing as a sling to protect this climb.

This is a fun climb, but it is short, like all climbs at the Torture Chamber. It is not a 10c; I give it a 9. The crux is near the top-- the holds are a bit thin and there are a couple of balancy moves.
