JJ cruising hard jams on The Cranium Crack V4, 199...


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.
