Description

A couple of hard moves on poor finger locks allows really good finger locks to be reached. Follow the crack to the top.

Near the top there is a long reach for a good hold, which although easier can be scary.

Location

Center crack.

Hmmm, I don't think the problem is named after the Madonna song. I suspect it is named after the perfect finger slots found up the crack... Oct 17, 2009

Interesting. That is NOT what that crack is called. Like a Virgin, the song via that tart Madonna came out in 1984. Bachar did that crack in probably 1979 or maybe 1980 at the latest. I'll ask around as to the original name, but it was called "Picnic Table Crack" or just "The Crack at the Bachar Boulders" since as far back as I recall....and that is like 1981 or so. Oct 2, 2009
