Cranium Crack is the crack in the middle of this p...

Description 

The crux of this route comes quickly while trying to surmount the initial roof on fun under-clings and marginal feet. After the 4th bolt, move right and climb the face-climbers dream crack with plenty of jugs and even a finger/hand jam or two.

Protection 

Bolts (this entire route could also be done with gear and a more direct start which would bring the grade down to 5.8 or so but also includes poor quality rock down low.)

The crack is really nice. The start is super contrived when there's a perfect direct line to the right. The shared start is incredibly awkward with a potentially dangerous fall.

Trust us, folks...the 5.10 start is way better than using that boring/bad rock to the right. It ain't dangerous. Get on it!
