Great cracks! Might want to bring the tape as they are both overhanging and grainy. Or you could just put your man pants on. I brought the tape, though. Mar 7, 2015

I gather that the left-facing tips dihedral between the two Conan cracks has not yet gone free. Looks very hard to me. Takers? The Tioga Pass Rd. is going to be open fairly soon. Apr 13, 2015
The middle crack is in the neighborhood of v10, around 2007 Feb 22, 2016
