Description

Super Crack is phenomenal. It is overhanging ring-locks pretty much the whole climb, no good rests, a couple good shakes, and multiple cruxes along the way. Originally rated 5.13 and referred to as "Wunsch upon a climb", this thing keeps coming at you the whole time you are on it. Russ Clune free-soloed this route, which is a testimate to his boldness and mastery of his craft.

Location

Super crack is located on a free-standing pillar 150 feet right of the pinnacle of Suckcess.

If you decide to hike in using the trails that are scattered around the perimeter of Skytop, you want to get to Forest Drive -- specifically, the side closest to Garden Road. Once you're on Forest Drive, keep walking until you see a boulder that looks like the one pictured here. After you see this head directly up towards the cliff through the vegetated talus; you may notice a hint of a trail on the right side of the rock.            

Protection

Mostly wide .5 Camelot size, narrowing at the top.
