Description Suggest change

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.
