Description

Steeper than the photo makes it! Climb through the splitter starting low. Avoid using the holds on the wall for your hands. Top out by reaching right after finishing the crack.

This would be a 4-star route if it was longer!

Location

Right in the middle of the wall. There's a small rock sticking out of the ground at the base of the route.

Protection

a couple pads

So, I always thought this was V2 from the stand. How low are you starting, full sit, squat, or tripod? I know it has been done from a full sit in the past... Feb 15, 2018

Joe, I think you’re thinking of another crack a little to the left. That one is much less steep than Super Crack 1. The one to the left has more features on the wall as well. Feb 15, 2018

Alright well, Gunks app gave it a 5, I felt it was in the 5.12 range due to the lack of footholds and it’s steepness. What should I leave it as then? Feb 15, 2018

I think it could be V6 from a full sit. Next time I'm out there I will try to get over there and give it a try.... Feb 15, 2018

Joe, I lowered the grade. If the sit start is harder, maybe list the SDS as another route? Feb 15, 2018
