Cracks Wall Rock Climbing
Jo Frances on Gecko Groove
The Cracks Wall is the most convenient of the crags, just two minutes from lake, toilet, and end of the trail. The trad climbing here is excellent with a number of high quality cracks in a tranquil location making this crag the first choice for most climbers. The rock is very clean and there is a high concentration of routes with an easy to navigate base. The rock stays shaded till mid-day.
From the lake walk back towards Kinloch for 1 minute to where a rock cairn marks the track leading up to the crag. The track meets the crag at the base of Rohans Arete. The crag is difficult to see through the trees.
