Description 

A thin move gains a sustained offset finger crack. A burly move or two in a changing corner leads to slightly easier ground in a right-facing corner. At the base of a bolted offwidth, a no hands rest appears to allow you to catch your breath. Four bolts up the "monster offwidth" size crack lead to fun stemming moves out a small rest. Finish with pumpy thin hands in a right-facing corner.


Location 

This is several hundred yards right of where the trail comes up. It's the next crack right from Hydraulic Pump. Next to it in the corner, and sharing anchors, is a cool offwidth called Monster Truck.


Protection 

A couple of TCUs for the start, several 1 and 1.5 friends, draws, 1 camalots or 2.5 friends for the top.

A visually stunning line with great climbing the whole way. Crankcase is easily one of the best routes on the wall. It doesn't stay any size for very long and is more sustained than its neighbor, Hydraulic Pump.
