Description

Across from Moss Island on the other side of the tracks is a visible Cross Crack. Scurry up the ridge to climb the crack. There is a belay station half way up if wanted. I think this is a GREAT Crack climb. I now live in Sphinx Park with abundant crack climbs, and I remember this to be stellar.

Location

Across from Moss Island on the other side of tracks. (Land is private and should have permission from the landowner.) My friend has a friend that asked them and they are cool, but down't press you luck without asking.

Protection

Hand size or trees for toprope

It was known as The Cross in the 70's. We'd heard it had been climbed, which I'm sure, but we didn't find any evidence when we did it, all clean, pre-Friends. Heady stuff for young climbers. Apr 2, 2017
