DescriptionHidden on the north face of Classic Rock is the eye catching namesake, Classic Crack. At first blush many years ago I thought this route was nothing "Classic", just a well-hidden cleft in the sandstone. But as time goes by, I return again and again. Then I look at pictures of the route and finally notice the green, lichen colored pastels of the tableau. I remember the safe landing and square cut top out, perfect for the aspiring boulderer. Yes, this is Classic Crack.
The North Side of Classic Rock has two tiers, split right where Classic Crack creases the boulder. Start on the lower tier for the full effect. The crux is working up from the ground using edges and a not so great finger jam to a point where you're able to reach into the large section of crack (there's a hidden hand jam back there) and crank up. Mantle to the top.
