Description 

Double Crack is the prominent crack system about fifteen feet right of the low-angle chimney (Chockstone Chimney) located center-right on the Short Wall. Climb the crack to a step left, then continue to the top.


Protection 

Medium to large cams. Usually toproped, but could be an easy beginner lead as well. Bigger hands help.

great for new leaders, better than toe jam express. great gear and jams the whole way, nice spot at top for larger cam anchor (camalot 3 and 4)

Great crack for teaching beginners jamming technique. Very fun climb.
