Sacramento Crack Machine: Field of dreams or cold dark garage

So, I'm trying to improve my vertical, straight-in crack climbing skills this fall/winter. I live in Sac, near Sac state, and trying to get connected with people who like chasing big rocks, especially in the valley and Sierras.

It's a little early for Christmas, but here'd be my list for Santa:
You have a crack machine from fingers to off hands, nearby Sac State, and have infinite stoke
You want someone to come over regularly, workout, drink your beer, and sit in your hot tub after
You want to workout up to climbing the nose and/or half dome in the spring

More realistically, it'd be great to meet other people who want to either...
help me build a crack machine in my garage, give me tips, or share workout protocols
come over and do climbing specific workout with me at my place near Sac State

(optional) drink beer and soak in the hot tub after

Hey, just a quick update.

No luck on finding an existing crack machine.
I do have a couple friends who have offered to help me build the crack machine and one person who might be in for workouts.

Fingers crossed... this could actually be happening.

Hey Chris. I’m in Sac too. I’ve got an inkling to start building a crack machine this winter, with similar goals in mind. Let’s connect

No love for Granite Arch gym ?

That's far and away the best gym I've ever been to for crack climbing. They are sculpted like real granite cracks!

I'm down south now but still miss it sometimes. Birthday parties and all (lol)

Crack machines are great, but tend to be pretty hard for anything other than hand jams.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
