2014 nesting closure MORE INFO >>>


Located between Crack A No Go and the sport climb Big Shot. This curved finger crack splits the a near-verical face after an overhanging bouldery start.For some reason its not mentioned at all in Carville's book despite the fact that it's pretty hard to miss.


Pro to one inch, shares top anchors with Crack A No Go.

We always called this the "Question Mark" crack...kind of a trickly lead.

Also heard it called "Question Mark" crack. Gear is definitely funky...should be a very solid leader at the grade if tackling this one.

The only place for 1" pro is in the boulder problem getting off the ground and maybe the horizontal hand traverse below the main crack. RPs, offsets, stoppers to #5, micro TCU's, and ballnuts are all that will work in the main portion of the crack.
