The rock is 40 feet from the road on a well marked path. Go to left of the rock and climb up to back of rock to reach Robbins Crack.

Only one piece of protection is needed on Robbins Crack if you are going to lead it... a #12 curved stopper fits perfectly in the hole above when you are standing on the midway ledge. A pad can protect the moves to the ledge and the piece will protect you from hitting the ground from there. Mar 27, 2007
