Begin as for March Madness clipping its first bolt. Then follow the kraks (sic) up the middle of the cliff. Loose rock has been removed, but expect it to feel like a first ascent.


This is 30 feet right of Tinnitus. Begin at the lowest part of the cliff, the same as for March Madness.

See Where's Ron for photo.


1 bolt to a 2-bolt anchor. Lots of gear less than 2.5 inches.

An intermediate climb for advanced climbers. The climb has several very large flakes that I'd be reticent to put gear behind, so I wouldn't put a new trad leader on it. Apr 23, 2010

The beta photo on the "Where's Ron" page shows Kraken veering left at the roof, but Kraken climbs well going straight up and following the slightly discontinuous crack all the way up past the roof. This crack safely takes plenty of medium and small pro. This route and March Madness felt easier to us than what some others have indicated, thus Leo's "gravity takes a break" comments. Nov 11, 2011

This climb has fun moves. I thought it was slightly easier than 8+. Funny, I thought Where's Ron was true to its rating while not this one, which is the opposite of Tony 's opinion. Dec 2, 2013
