Pathetic Crack is the obvious, wide crack splitting Pathetic Dome. Don't let the guidebook fool you; it's definitely NOT a "hand crack."

The 5.6 crux is in the first ten feet of offwidth, followed by pleasant chimneying on up.

If you're planning to toprope Pathetic Face (well worth doing, since you're already here), it's just as efficient to top out left on Pathetic Crack and only build the anchor once.


Offwidth rack; nothing small, up through a #4 Camalot.
