Short finger crack below fix gear slung on vegetation. Start on small rock ramp and make a few crack moves.


TCUs and stoppers.

I'm not sure who was the first ascensionist for Z Crack, but I am sure it wasn't me and CC. CC and I did the FA of Space Monkeys along with Buddy Price and Jimmy McCarthur. My first trip to the Bald was in 85. We climbed Nuclear Arms, Z-Crack and Shredded Wheat. There were slings for Z Crack on the Laurel then. Mar 25, 2015

This thing is tougher than it looks. Nice little climb, well worth it if you have a leader who can keep him or herself safe (crux so close to the ground). Nov 27, 2018
