Description 

The Crack House is a highly featured wall that faces NW off the north tip of Castle Rock. It has one sport route, Jug-a-Lug, and a number of named and identified crack lines. In addition to multiple close interconnecting crack lines covering the wall, it also has many face holds and horns. The potential for different gear-led lines/variations besides these named routes is quite huge. Identifying specific lines can be difficult however because of all the possible variations. Shade until early afternoon.


Getting There 

Approach the area from any of the trails on the east side, heading to the farthest north tip of Castle Rock. The Crack House is just around the corner to the west and faces toward the NW and Poultry Pillar. An alternative approach can reach The Crack House from the west via the notch from Hostess Gully (the west-side gully between the Main Castle Rock and the West Buttress.
