This was my first climb at Harmels back in 1975. It is a sweet corner/crack climb with good pro and an intriquing variety of techniques to deal with. As the name implies, locals regularly 3rd class this route often down from the ledge, but don't let their having it wired allow you take Solo Crack for granted. It is full value. Many options to continue exist, the classic finish being up Aqua Dog.
Solo Crack is a fine first or early lead for the aspiring trad afficianado.
Around the corner and up a short scramble to the left of Tony's Tango lies the cool V slot of Solo Crack.
A standard Taylor trad rack. This route tops out on the same ledge that Air Conditioner does. Trad anchors are easy to set up here. There are fixed anchors to the right near the top to set up a TR.
