Big Mac Crack

5.7, Trad,  Avg: 2.6 from 32 votes
FA: T. Perkins, M. Stricklen, 1997
Colorado > Independence Pass > Lincoln Creek > Finger Food Wall

Description

This is excellent as a first trad lead. It climbs funny crack(s) on a prominent prow.

Location

This is the 5th and right-most established climb on Fast Food Wall. You can't miss it!

Protection

Mid-sized cams work best. Run out the low angle top section for extra fun! 2 bolt top anchors but no rap rings.

[Hide Comment] Lead this yesterday, fun route. I found protection a little difficult down low, perhaps because I forgot my 0.75. Good holds though, kinda interesting climbing but easy enough that you can really concentrate on your gear. Sep 16, 2012
