Strawberry Crack
Potential road closures in winter. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This route goes up the crack to the left of Rosebush. Climb up the crack through a small bulge and then continue up past a fixed nut. Work your way up and into a short chimney area. From here you can jam the crack straight up, or work out onto the face on good holds to the right.


Location 

This route is located on the south-facing wall at Practice Rock. Once you have topped out, belay your partner from there. This climb is not conducive to toproping, as there is a pair of rope-eating cracks. Walk back along the ledge twenty feet from the anchor to a pair of rap rings atop Practice Crack. One single rope rappel will get you down.


Protection 

A standard rack protects this climb nicely. Look for good passive pro. There is one fixed nut early in the climb. A two bolt anchor is waiting at the top (no rap rings).

Watch out lowering a partner off this route/rappelling , as the rope can become wedged in the crack if no directional is set.
