Just right of the Landwhale arete is the right facing corner which makes up Cracktus. First, climb one of the Unknowns to the base of this line. Belay here or continue up the corner with great jams, stems and face holds.

Descent - Rappel from a tree or scramble/hike to the climber's right and down the descent trail.

There is now a 2 bolt anchor midway between the top of cracktus and pinacate. It is equipped with 2 quicklinks. Very fun route!

Pretty tough for a 5.7. I think it's 5.9 neighbor is actually easier.
