BETA PHOTO: The Book as divided on Mountain Project.
This is a sub-section of the Book, including routes on the climbers right of the Book and surrounding areas, including some routes featured on large boulders below the J-Crack Slab. The title route, J-Crack
, is perhaps one of the most popular and classic climbs on all of Lumpy Ridge. This area also features such amazing climbs as Thindependence (5.10c)
, Loose Ends (5.9)
and Pear Buttress (5.8)
. The final route included in this area to the climbers left would be Monkey on a String (5.12)
. See the Pages Wall Area
for routes further left on the Book.
Hike as you would to the Book. Break right towards the base of the cliff. J-Crack looks just as it sounds- the area surrounding this climb is the J-Crack Slab. Several climbs also exist on large boulders below that include their own specific directions.
