Emigrant Crack follows the striking finger crack b...


Striking finger crack that splits the smooth face right of Gunklandia. One must hang with the crack the entire way for full value. Stepping left into Gunklandia at any point drops the grade to 5.9.

Descend by walking up and left from the top of the route (exposed class 2+) to the bolted rappel anchor atop Return to Forever. 2-Rappels with a 60m rope lead to the ground.


Begin pitch 3 of Gunklandia. At a ledge with a large dead tree, step right and follow the finger crack to the top.

It is possible to climb Emigrant Crack after staring on either Connecticut Crack, Old Town or Gunklandia. A large ledge splits the cliff at mid-height. An exposed scramble allows you to move horizontally between routes.

I was able to access this climb by doing Precipice Ledges (5.4) and then making a 4th class traverse right. This is good beta if your partner isn't solid at 5.10.
