Cielo Crack CragCielo Crack Crag (aka "Pacalolo" aka "Gap Crack") is a testament of hope to those who think Santa Barbara is climbed outwhich it is. Kind of. At least the most obvious lines are. But for those who want a pleasant surprise which has been sitting right under their noses since the 80's, Cielo Crack is for you. While not a new addition to Santa Barbara climbing, Cielo Crack has fallen out of popularity in the last ten years, hence the prolific amounts of poison oak on the approach.
Cielo Crack Crag's namesake packs a mighty wallop in 35 feet, and touts as muchif not moresustained, constant jamming than any other climb in town. Wide stuff, fists, off-hands, hands, fingers, off-fingers... it's all there. And did I say it begins as a roof crack? This splitter stays engaging to the VERY last move.
