A fantastic route that should be climbed more than it is. I've seen people enjoy onsighting this, other enjoy giving it a few goes, and I climb it every time I'm in the area. Good eye and good bolting, Jeff.
And thanks to the people who put the new bolts in. In the later days of the older bolts it was a bit of a sweat-and-shake horrorfest. Oct 25, 2007

Anyone know anything about the crack to the right of this climb. May 21, 2008

Jeff,

I am wondering the same thing. I just climbed the crack to the right today. Not a bad crack, but a loose block made it interesting. once i reached the dirt at the top, I traversed left to the anchors, as there are none on the crack. I would say it is maybe a 9+/10-.

Does anyone know the name? Has anyone else climbed it? Oct 17, 2010
I don't think there's a name for the crack right of crank n go go but it's a fun one. My brother led the 10.d and it was a little over my head so I cheated up the crack. I agree with the guy above; 5.9+ or 5.10 (leaning towards the 5.10 I think). Maybe we should name it? Cheat n go go/ crack n go go/ crank n no go? Pretty sure I wasn't the first ascent since I climbed it last week but it should get a name. It's pretty fun (minus one of the flakes that's as sharp as a box cutter :) Oct 28, 2012

Crack just right of Crank-n-Go-Go: “Try Crack-N-Go” Start as far right at base of climb following thin crack and whatever holds await to the massive flake of Crank-n-gogo, verge right to thin crack while stemming. Watch out for vines. Maybe a 5.9, 2.5star. Sep 24, 2018
