Randall top roping Flaring Crack


This is the flake/crack to the left of The Love Shack and the more beautiful sibling of Big Crack. Despite the name, this climb is rather nice. Unfortunately for your camming devices the crack flares IN and not out. This can be a problem if you're attached to your gear and not skilled at retrieving cams that have walked deep within the rock.


This is the obvious crack immediately left of The Love Shack. Stop on the ledge at bolt anchors and rappel.


Small and medium gear. Make sure to sling them long to prevent walking.
