Description

Climb up to the crack; getting there is the crux.
Continue up with wonderful jams, especially for the right side, until the crack takes a sudden dogleg left. Either follow the crack to its end, then head over to Glee Club Crack to finish, or (original ascent line) climb straight up knobby slab to the top.

Location

Just before the base of the slab begins to rise sharply up to the right, near its right end, lies a left-facing corner with a crack in it, neither of which reach the ground.

Protection

.5 to #2 C4s. Doubles of .7 and 1. Nuts, Hexes, and other toys will also do.

One of my new favorite moderates at Crane. Will definitely lead it for fun next time (didn't have time for that today). Rock is clean and jams are great. High quality easy route. Aug 25, 2012

Excellent climb for a leader breaking into the 5.6 range. Takes SLCD's, Stoppers, Nuts, Hex's Tri Cam's you name it. It's also a great top rope for those who don't like being on the sharp end. I think a new leader who is peaking at 5.5 might find this tough, so I gave it a 5.6 rating. Sep 8, 2013
Fun route ... hurt the hell out of my feet though. Oct 5, 2017
