Doubled Back on Crack Towers

Parking listed elsewhere is on private property MORE INFO >>>


Solid granite crack with beautiful hand jams all the way up. The first quarter is on a weathered flake but after a dodgy start, the climb begins. The crux is a power reach from a left hand jam to an awesome bomber ledge with your right.


Continue right past Main Wall Right completely, follow a faint trail for about a quarter of a kilometer that leads further out from Main Wall Right to Crack Towers with two unmistakable cracks


Pro is trad. Passive protection is ideal in the first half when the crack is really narrow, then a couple cams are clutch for the wider crux part.
