Description 

This route follows the obvious S/SE facing crack/chimney. The route begins with a easy fifth class groove/chimney on the west face. Traverse left to right from the top of this chimney to a prominent ledge below the crack (a move of 5.6).

Climb the crack which begins as fists, opening up in 25 feet to a squeeze. I burrowed horizontally through the squeeze - pinched at the bottom, like half closed bombay doors - similar in width to the Harding Slot on Astroman. Belay at two bolt anchor from which you can also rap to the deck.

  • If you can't squeeze through the slot this route might be 5.12. Therefore this route is pretty much ungradeable...

Location 

Crow Creek Crack is on the S Face of Crow Creek Outcrop.

Protection 

1 each #1 to #5 Camalot. A # Big Bro is nice to protect the crux.
