Description

catenary (n): The curve assumed by a cord of uniform density and cross section that is perfectly flexible but not capable of being stretched and that hangs freely from two fixed points.

Catenary Crack is a terrific line up the north wall of the Railroad Amphitheater. Start out on the slightly overhanging bottom section (crux). The hard part is getting started, and this is made worse by the fact that the rock here is often wet. Once off the ground follow the crack up between the roof on your left and the staggered overhangs on your right. If you can get up this one try some 5.10's.
