Just right of center on the west face, there's a ledge about ten feet wide and five feet high. You can gain the ledge through unprotected but relatively easy climbing at either end.

Cranny starts from the right end of the ledge, and follows the obvious double crack system. It requires an interesting combination of techniques, and protection is adequate but not copious.


Standard rack, including small cams (Aliens).

All the gear on this is good, black and green master cams did the trick. Feb 15, 2017
Great climb, but I did note "Bad Fall Potential" in my anecdotal notes for the route. Apr 18, 2015

Just left of the double cracks on Cranny, there is a shallow left leaning crack that we were able to climb on the same toprope. Does anyone know the name and rating of this climb? I was unable to find it on MP or in any of the guidebooks we had. I would expect it to be in the low 5.10 range. Apr 10, 2014
Good climb. Was scratching my head at the crux until I figured out to stem wide and lieback. Nov 8, 2011

This climb is tons of fun (if only it could have been 4 times as long). The moves are varied and cool and the protection was great. No need for aliens, I placed a .75, 1, and 2 C4 all of which were bomber. As for the rating, I didn't know what it was rated before jumping on it and when I got to the top I said it felt like 5.8, so I'd say the rating is right on. Dec 20, 2010

Short, a better toprope than as a lead. All of an "8." Sep 9, 2010
Take just a light rack of cams and nuts. Lots of stemming. Last moves at the top are definitely stout. Feb 16, 2010

Way more fun than I expected for such a short route! First 5.8 lead. May 27, 2009

I thought this climb was a lot easier than it looked (althogh I only toproped it). The pro looked a little sketchy, would love to lead it otherwise. I stemmed most of the way up which probably made it feel easier. Jan 11, 2009

Maybe this one has cleaned up over the years, I found the pro to be bomber and saw little of the above mentioned sand. Went on a nut down low and two BD #1's. Top out moves are powerful to say the least, and the high step layback is tons of fun. Overall, an exciting - if all too short - lead that I will do again! Mar 3, 2008

This climb is surprisingly fun! I found solid gear, and never felt that the protection was dubious (and I'm pretty picky about good gear!) Definitely steep for a 5.8! Apr 7, 2007
Fun route. Sep 10, 2006
Belaying from the first ledge above the ground makes this climb much safer. Otherwise, a leader fall higer up can end up on the leader hitting the second ledge, due to rope stretch. Apr 4, 2005
Better as a toprope.The crack gets sandy and the pro can be dubious and tricky. Quite steep for a 5.8 and the final moves are a mutha! Oct 1, 2004

I didn't realize how steep this climb is until I was into the alcove and standing at the base. Fun, interesting climb. Nov 29, 2003
