Description 

About 100' tall, Crack house features 5 near-vertical crack climbs on its front and two overhanging projects around to the right. The rock is granite, and tends towards sharp edges, so be careful with the rope! Also, there's still loose stuff on the crag, so a helmet is a good idea for the belayer and even

Getting There 

Upon reaching Potter's rock, follow the trail along the base of the crag for about 100 yards until it starts countouring uphill between "Hope on a Rope" and "Hell Nino". At this point there will be a faint leaf-filled trail head left from the base trail. Follow this for about 500 yards along the contour of the hill and you will see a BIG dead tree at the base of a cliff. You're here. On the right side of the tree are the two projects, and the left are the established climbs.

Project 5.12 7b+ 27 VIII+ 26 E6 6b California : Central Sierra : ... : Crack House, The
This project is an overhanging and outward flaring off-width crack located on the right side of the Crack House. Bruce Bindner placed the bolts on top of it to keep people from using the loose flake for pro, or anything else. He also recommends that the route be named "Ebola" once someone sends it "because it is sick," and because the skin contusions you're sure to receive are similiar to those of an ebola victim after some internal organs have burst....[more]   Browse More Classics in California
