Description 

Low Tide Crack is a hand to fist crack facing the Pacific Ocean. The crux is within the first fifteen feet of the ground. If it is not the bottom of the low tide on a sunny afternoon the approach can be deadly slick. Rap from anchors on the south face of the pinnacle. Most leaders feel that this route is 5.9.


Location 

Low Tide Crack is located on the southern of two pinnacles that are just north of wedding rock proper. The route ascends the striking crack on the center of the west face. Rap the south side which gets you down above the rising tide.


Protection 

Crack pro to 2.5 inches. Glue in stainless bolts for rap.

One could also rap into the notch, scoping / TR-ing High Tide Crack and Wedding Night Lingerie and scramble out, if the tide is low.
