Description

Flying Delorean is a fairly continuous crack system on a pinnacle shaped feature just north of Birthday Crack. The pinnacle alone is easily identifiable but the crack system that runs up the pinnacles right side cannot be missed. Start on dirty ledge at base of wall, climb crack on right side of wall all the way to a comfy ledge. Finish as per "Flux Capacitor Crack" by straddling and slapping both aretes for an airy, exciting finish.

Protection

Standard Rack. Goes mostly on passive.

If you have a number 5 cam it fits wonderful at the top of the crack. That unused #5 finally got a chance to be placed. Apr 19, 2015

Very nice moves! A little technique, a little faith, and a great hold just past each delicate move.

Gear: it's not plug-and-go, but with patience and the right gear (mostly finger sized nuts and cams, with one fist-sized cam) it can be sown up. Mike S. & I used the smallest ballnut (we each led). There is also some easy-to-place side-gear. May 29, 2012

This can be finished easier by stepping right of left around the corner of the top pinnacle. Oct 5, 2011
