  • Description 

    Crackdown is the rightmost route in The Garden. It climbs a tricky finger crack that's harder than it looks.

    Start on the far right side of The Garden below the obvious finger crack. Climb the crack, with some tricky moves, up to a bolt. Clip the bolt and continue to a good ledge. Climb a short left-facing corner, then move left and up the right edge of a slab. Pass the big pine tree on the left, and move up right to the anchor on a pedestal, about 10' above the tree.

    Belay here if you're doing one of the upper wall routes (Showtime, Dutch Treat, Border Crossing, or The B Boys), or lower back down.

    Location 

    On the far right side of The Garden, below the obvious finger crack.

    The crux section is short on this. It is only a move or two.
