Description

This is the first section of the main wall that you come to. It's the sheerest and most polished section of the wall; consisting of a few gnarly 5.10 splitters, a 5.12 seam, a classic 5.8, and much more to keep you going. All-in-all, some of the best climbing along the wall.

Getting There

When hiking the trail, the first wall you'll come to is the Silly Pinnacle, the main route is marked by the bolt-ladder by the trail. Continue to the right past the SP, not too much further up the trail you'll come to a polished wall gleaming in the sunlight. This is the race crack area. Race crack is the two foot wide corner (5.10+)
