Description [Edit]

Typical Gunks diagonal fingercrack/face combo. Might be awkward for those without good foot technique. Reminded me a bit of Ken's Crack, except without the bomber fingerlocks.

Location [Edit]

As you approach the Big Slab/Compactor area, you'll notice the alcove directly ahead and a large slab on the left. Slant Crack is on the left wall, just before the alcove; follow the diagonal crack to top, step out and around to the face, straight to top. A walk-off is possible, but it involves a bit of a class 4 scramble to get to the very top of the cliff where you'll find the path.

Protection [Edit]

Adequate protection on lead. Please make certain to place several directionals on the route if you TR it; the route goes off at a good angle, and the potential pendulum isn't pleasant. Gear-only anchor.
