Fun trad climb, makes a good first trad lead. The top anchors from the sport Glenn's 10 are used for this climb as well.


Climb down the body width squeeze to the secluded squeeze ledge.


Beginning moves need a 2, having two 3 and a 4 would make this route much easier to protect. Smaller cams can easily protect the top. Can be climbed on smaller cams but the placement must be perfect.

Anybody know if The Crack is rain friendly?

There is a roof above the climb so it might stay dry in rain, but as the pics show, it seeps a lot. More so in winter i think. I just led this for the first time and it was nice. A headier lead than alpine dihedral because the crux is down low. Protected the crux with a 3 and 2 before the move and then got a 4 in right above it.
