The Cranium Boulder is a tall, rounded, boulder/wall split by one classic crack line on the north face. There are also a handful of problems on the surrounding walls.

Getting There 

From Thor's Chasm, hike west along that wall until it ends in a little canyon. Hike north to the next little canyon, and you will be standing below The Cranium Crack.

The Cranium Crack is one of the best crack problems in Prescott, and an overall classic. This tall line starts out with some dramatic cranking to actually enter the crack. Once your jamming, keep going till you are mantling out on fist jams!! I cleared the landing to this line in 1999, and quickly sent it. Years later, Brent Edens told me that he and Bill Cramer had maybe tr'ed the line, though he wasn't sure....[more]   Browse More Classics in Arizona
