Description 

No ethical debates here. A route for those who won't touch chipped rock and who just happen to have brought a rack to The Sport Park. The eponymous and obvious crack in the middle of Forbidden Fruit Block. Start off with a couple moves of burly fisting. Transistion to a fingerlock, loose sticks and pebbles and copious guano. A couple of stemming jams, a step left and you can catch your breath. From here you can continue easily to the top or step left 4 feet to the anchors of High Test. This is one of those pitches which on first glance invite thoughts of soloing, but once you start climbing it, you'll be glad you didn't.

Protection 

A few cams up to a #3 Camalot. A medium nut or two is also useful.
