Description

Slachar Cracker is about eight feet right of the sport route, Couch Fire and is listed as route #5, p. 205 in D'Antonio's guidebook. It consists of two powerful boulder problems separated by a jug rest. Though laughably short, like everything at this cliff, it's worth carrying a small rack for this fun route, the only trad line at the crag.

Protection

One each #0 TCU-#0.5 Camalot, RPs, #2 Camalot. Lower from a two-bolt anchor.

Impressive. Good job.
I put in the anchors and cleaned it somewhat, but it was well beyond my abilities.
Hope some of the other routes serve as a warmup. Feb 7, 2010

A great lead by Chris on a freezing-cold day. This crack is super-bouldery and much more of a 5.12d than a 5.12c; it's also cleaning up nicely. Climb up to the hand jam, load some thin gear, downclimb to the ground, catch your breath, gun it!

Many thanks to Greg Hand, Bob D, and crew for the anchors atop the crack and their good work at this crag. Feb 7, 2010
Great route name! Feb 7, 2010
