Description [Suggest Change]
The Banana Cracks can be a good place to climb on a cold day, as the formation somewhat blocks out the wind. The formation comes into the sun by late morning. The Right Banana Crack was one of the hardest routes in the 1977 guidebook. It is an exciting lieback and hand crack, with great protection.
Location [Suggest Change]
The Banana Cracks are unmistakable. They are about four feet apart at the start, and then diverge as the right one arches out under a roof. Scramble up from the left to get to the large ledge at the base of the cracks.
