Description

The [second] bolted line up hill from the The Altar starts on a small platform. Arch Crack follows an arching crack for 40 feet and then dumps out onto a short, thin headwall for 20 more feet. This line kicked up interesting moves in the crack at 5.9/5.10 and then switched gears entirely pulling out of the crack (5.11a). Largely very good stone, although quite thin at the top, coupled with interesting climbing make Arch Crack a very worthy endeavour. Its grade was closer to 5.11a than 11b.

Protection

Half a dozen draws and a rope.

Great climb. The crack is sustained, yet typical .9/.10 sport climbing. If you are struggling to make the clips, your not in the right place. The transition to the upper face is AWASOME. Great feet and tiny fingers. Oct 7, 2002

There is a route to the left of arch crack and right of stolen land. The route was established in August and I wish to know rating. Oct 5, 2003
We did the route between Arch Crack, and Stolen Land today. I don't know the name or rating???, but we both thought it was a great climb **. Oct 14, 2005

This route is really fun. Did this after Stolen Land, and it felt totally cruiser.

We did the route between Stolen Land and Arch Crack as well. Felt like 5.9ish. Definitely worthwhile route. Jul 14, 2007
