Description

The most obvious natural weakness on the wall when viewed from afar, Six-Pack Crack begins in the large, right-facing corner above an easy chimney--there is a nice belay alcove for two at the top of the large flake, which forms the left margin of the chimney. Stem the corner, being sure not to miss great holds and good gear to one's right. A sizeable ledge then marks the start of the crack proper, which varies in size from fingers to fists, but takes great gear the entire way. A joy to lead and a great warm-up, though the approach alone should have sufficed. Descend from slings atop 12 oz. Curl with a single 60m.

Location

The Six-Pack Crack is on the Beer Belly main face.

Protection

Bring along a standard rack with some long runners; some may want to bring doubles in cams from fingers to fists.
