The 5.8 crack is located on the north-facing cliff about 200 yards to the west of the Redbird statue. This route was originally described as a "classic 5.8". It is the leftmost route on a steep section of fair-quality rock.

Pull up through the obvious crack system to the roof. Move right and grunt through some jugs to the top.


Requires finger-sized protection for trad.

There's really no gear above the roof. And what could be a small cam placement would surely pull if you fell on it.

Takes small to medium cams. Sep 27, 2010

Definitely realized what you meant about grunting your way through the jugs above the roof. Jul 27, 2009

I gave the 5.8 Crack 4 stars because it is one of the favorites at High Cliff. It is very cool climbing from the beginning until the top when it starts getting a little chossy. Definitely a route you need to get on when climbing at High Cliff. Dec 12, 2006
