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.
