Hey guys looking for some sun beta. Really want to climb the Chrysler Crack. My guide book says no sun for the entire Sandy Corridor, but I know this climb is farther down and at the top of a gully, so hoping there sun on it at some point.

Hit me up if you have any idea when this comes into the sun, if at all. Thanks guys! Be safe out there!

Mike - Never. It is northwest facing and in a shaded nook. I've done it several times over the course of a year and never remotely had the route in the sun. Early morning the belayer may be able to hang out in the sun. It's an OW - more fun with lots of clothes anyway. cheers.

Is Chrysler as good as I keep hearing? I'm coming to Vegas for ten days around christmas and have had this thing circled...

If it's your thing, sure. It's a splitter, clean corner without the usual RR faceholds. Starts with a 6 camalot and gets bigger. In the shade all year. Folks with smaller feet may have to employ unconventional tactics (see Russ's pics) - I was able to heel-toe most of it (size 11). Sounds like a good bit of fun to me...
