It seems like hard work getting to this marvelous climb if you don't like talus approaches. You can see it the whole hike up. Done in one long pitch, Summertime goes from fingers and gradually widens to hands and bigger to the trees on top, all on excellent rock. It's a trip, well worth the hike.


This is all the way up Cracked Canyon, facing downhill toward the road.


Nuts and cams.

An absolutely amazing pitch! Perfect crack climbing and quite sustained. This is well worth the tedious approach hike all the way up the canyon. Because of the length, bring a full rack. We had 2x from #0.3 to #2, 1x of 000-0 C3s and a full set of nuts. This was just right.
