Description

It seems like hard work getting to this marvelous climb if you don't like talus approaches. You can see it the whole hike up. Done in one long pitch, Summertime goes from fingers and gradually widens to hands and bigger to the trees on top, all on excellent rock. It's a trip, well worth the hike.

Location

This is all the way up Cracked Canyon, facing downhill toward the road.

Protection

Nuts and cams.

An absolutely amazing pitch! Perfect crack climbing and quite sustained. This is well worth the tedious approach hike all the way up the canyon. Because of the length, bring a full rack. We had 2x from #0.3 to #2, 1x of 000-0 C3s and a full set of nuts. This was just right. Jun 15, 2008

Don't forget to bring two ropes for the rap! From the tree at the very top, a 70m comes up about 10 feet short.... Aug 1, 2016

Definitely worth the hike. An 80m just reached on rap. If you need to downclimb with a 70m, the first fifteen feet are either wet and mossy 5.6 or good 5.9 with a bad landing zone. I'd do it again with a 70m and rig a biner block and slings/cord to extend.

Stellar jamming. I traversed early into the fistcrack up top, and it was a bit dirty. Probably better to face climb a bit after the right crack peters out.

No need for a #4. The left fist crack takes smaller gear in horizontals. Jul 3, 2017
