BETA PHOTO: warm up crack

Description 

Great fun warm up for the other bouldering. I have bouldered this but would take gear if you wanted to lead. Some great hand jams and stemming. Very wet the majority of the time. Give it atleast 3 days after a rain to dry out.

Location 

Superior Hiking Trail pull off. Follow bright orange flagging to crag. Crack between the two right most slabs.

Protection 

Pads and spotter or a couple medium cams

Good work! Call the FA, Adam...this was always too wet when we went out!

Holy Crap this thing was sweet! Perfect jams to the top! I would recommend everyone get on this (that way it would get cleaned up!), and also a topout be created. Raise your hand if you wish this went on for another 200 ft!

I gave this 2 stars because of the fact that this is always wet. Don't let that fool you, as Chris said the climbing is great.

Beautiful crack I climbed it with a single pad at the bottom and never did I feel unsafe, the crack is perfect size for hand and foot jams. Everything was so solid, even though it was soaking wet your hand jams will never slip out.
