Description

Big Ellie's Little Crack is a short splitter.

Location

This climb is located 100 or so feet left (west) of the route "Rain Delay" on its own little formation/grouping of rocks between Prestige Worldwide Wall and the Real Hidden Valley. It is on the right side of the crag.

Protection

It has a tree belay. There is no webbing on the tree, we're not sure about a walkoff.

We cleaned off a decent bit of dirt and some loose rocks in the crack on this one, but there's still quite a bit of dirt in the upper crack. There are a couple wiggly flakes in the crack that'll probably come out with a hammer. You can definitely scramble off to the right and join the usual PWWW walkoff. Oct 18, 2013

This is a fun route, but it only has one interesting move. You need protection up to a #2 Camalot. You could place two #2s, but one is enough to bring. The crack is mainly #0.75 Camalot sized. There is a place for a #1. I do not recommend this as a destination climb, but it is worth doing if you are in the area. Apr 22, 2014
