As the name implies, Middle Crack is the centerpiece of the Triple Cracks and is located between Owl and Becky's Cracks. Middle Crack is an excellent climb, and a must do for any E-Rock visitor. The start is more of a flake with good lieback moves than a crack. The crux comes early - about 10-15 feet up, the crack curves up and left, leaving a small 'bulge' on the right (protects well with a #2 Camalot). There is a second, smaller 'bulge' above the crux. Continue up the crack as it goes from fists to hands and eventually to fingers. The climbing gets easier as you get higher. Belay/rap from anchors at the top (single rope rap). Great route.


Standard rack with cams up to a #3 Camalot.
