Critter Crack is an easy and straightforward crack climb, though you needn't pull a single crack move if you prefer to avoid such things. If you DO want to do some jamming, tape is heavily advised as the inside of the crack is sharp.


Look for an obvious hand sized crack system just left of Chief Joseph.


Standard trad rack heavy on hand sized pieces. Bolted anchor is shared with Chief Joseph. Be careful, you'll only have a few feet to spare with a 60 meter rope. It is easy to toprope this route after leading Chief Joseph.
