Description 

It’s a sin to bolt cracks like this one, hence the name “Haram Crack”, Arabic for “sin”. The crux is getting up into the crack at the second bolt, it takes using the right side cling while jamming the left hand and foot into the crack then laying back to get the right side of your body in.

Location 

The route is on top of the Thali platform, just to the left of number #9.

Protection 

The route is bolted the entire way up and features chains at the top of the route.

In Ladakh. Not far from Leh in a little area called Shey. Great climbing and MASSIVE potential.
