Description

The Crack House is a single-pitch cragging area. It's a canyon with two separate walls, the west-facing wall being the steeper and taller of the two, with about 8-10 routes, trad or mixed. The east side has seen the most development, with more than 20 routes, seven of them being sport routes. Like most of the areas at the BSF the Crack House routes stay dry.

Getting There

The Crack House's west wall starts at the right end of the 911 wall. The trail starts on the east side, the approach is about 10 min. 20 if you can't find the trail and thrash through the bushes.

It would be helpful for organizational purposes to split the crackhouse into east and west (sides).

Also, correction in the above description: The west side (east-facing, not "west-facing") side is the taller and much shadier wall of the two. The east side gets a lot of sunshine in the afternoon. Nov 21, 2012
