Crackin Up follows the diagonal crack to the left.


Start on the North facing side of the arête. Climb up the face angling left to a slightly overhanging fist sized crack that angles to the left, climb the crack to its end and then finish by climbing straight up to the top.

This is a really short, but sweet line with some nice jams and easy pro. I would recommend it as a warm up for some of the harder cracks at the crag, or for any confident 5.7 leader. It is super close to the road, the rock is solid, and it's a really quick walk off...really no reason not to just do it.
