Description 

Callan's Crack is a stand-out pitch of incredible face and crack climbing on creamy orange and white granite. This route takes a full bag of technique, fitness and mental fortitude to survive its epic 36 meters.

Climb some less-than-desirable rock past two bolts to a nice, left-facing corner. The corner leads to a bulge with a bolt before a rest on a nice foot ledge. Continue on fun face climbing before the crux traverse moving up and right to the base of the obvious splitter. Amazing thin hands, laybacking, and perfect hands leads to the anchor.

Location 

Start right behind the tree at the base of the Orange Wall.

Protection 

5 bolts, a standard rack up to BD #3, and a 2-bolt anchor.
