The Mark of Art is an incredibly sustained 1-2" corner to the right of Sacherer Cracker. It shares the beginning (and the crux) of Sacherer Cracker, then branches to the right up the spectacular corner. You may be able to do this in one pitch from the ground, but there are convenient chains at the ledge above the 5.7 section making two pitches more desirable. Shaded in the morning and in the sun after noon.

It is possible to rappel the route with one 60M rope. It will take three rappels. First do a very short rap into the chimney above Sacherer Cracker to get to the Sacherer Cracker chains, then rap to the ledge above the 5.7 OW section, then rap to the ground. With a 70m, you can surely make it to the ground in two.


Start as for Sacherer Cracker climbing the 5.7 OW section to the ledge. Continue up the thin layback section, which is the crux of Sacherer Cracker. Shortly thereafter, move right into a left-facing corner which continues for the remainder of the pitch. Continuous and hard 5.10 laybacking will get you to the anchors.


Standard rack to 3 inches, doubles or triples of 1-1.5 inch pieces (yellow, orange, red Metolius).
