DescriptionCanary Crack is a little known, old school classic in the Flagstaff area, named for the bright yellow lichen which covers the pillars. Start by rapping down 100' to a ledge, and build a belay.
Then enjoy crisp jams in the ever widening crack. Hands to off width. A #4 is useful at the top. Enjoy the show!
My first time on this thing, a long time ago, I didn't have anything bigger than a #3 Camalot. Pumped and tired I opted for the flake on the left hand side at the top of the clean section. I found great climbing, good small/medium gear, and excellent exposure. A worthy variation if you don't fancy the wide stuff.
