Thanks for putting these up. We played around on this rock a lot "back in the day". I used to warm up on that crack to the left of Chief Broken wing. Many times I tried the 1/4 inch Master crack, but didn't have the technique or shoes for it back then. I think I even used it for practicing clean aid one time. Brings back fond memories.
