Hard moves getting to the first bolt and moving past it. Easier climbing to another tricky section up high.


Start on the blank face to the right of Cracking Up in the Amphitheater and follow the bolt line to the anchors.


Quickdraws. Five bolts plus two for the anchors.

Haven't been up there recently but are these new bolts within arm's length of Crackin' Up?

The bolts are not within reach of the crack itself. Kinda start close than wander back to the right and ends at the top of cracking ups new anchors although you could use either set that was free.

Pretty sustained but most of the clipping stances are decent, 10c is probably pushing it I would go 10a with the crux being the start which you could really bypass depending on how to start it.
