Description 

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.


Getting There 

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.

Monkey on a String 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ E5 6b  CO : Lumpy Ridge : ... : J-Crack Slab Area
This route is right around the left arete from thinstone. This super-clean arete makes climbing thin the entire way. 2 cruxes make up the route, one being down low and one up top. Pre-clipping first bolt from thinstone is not a bad idea although that is a little tricky as well. In the picture it is the arete on the left. The bolts start on the left side and move over to the other side after 2....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
