"Crack" is the obvious splitter located at the southeast corner of the Cube. This steep crack is way harder than it looks, and it is quite sustained. Follow the crack through flaring hands to fingers to more hands up to the top. It is a great pump for a relatively short pitch!


This can be top-roped from bolts on top of the climb. To lead it, bring a range of nuts and camming devices from small up to hand-sized pieces.

Wow! This is stout for 11c and would be a very proud onsight. Thought it is short (only 12 or 13 moves), it packs a big punch.

Sharp, weird, and pretty cold right now. The moves felt compressed and desperate, but maybe I was just having a bad day? If you're messing around on this rock, I'd recommend the 12b (yellow jacket) over this one.
