Crack a Smile


Climb #11: *Crack a Smile (5.8, 90’) This route offers another possible 2nd pitch above Warm-Up. Go straight up from the anchor through a lower angle broken terrain and cracks to the base of the offwidth crack. Climb inside and grunt your way up a short but sweet crux and ‘crack a smile’ when you’re successfully through it. At top of the OW there is a choice of going straight up on a lichen slab to a rap sling around a tree (same as used by Bungle in the Jungle), or you can traverse out right another 50’+ to another tree with a webbing anchor. Either way, you’ll have a free-hanging rap over the large roof. If you chose the later, you’ll touch down at, or near, the anchors at the top of Sassafras.


Standard trad rack.
