Laughing Crack climbs the right facing corner just left of The Twilight Zone. Fun, thought provoking climbing takes one up and through the corner to the cliff top.


Just left of the sweet hand crack of The Twilight Zone, Laughing Crack climbs a nice right facing corner system.

Descent is by rappel from a large tree or by scrambling down to the climber's right.

First lead ascent: Larry Coats, Tim Coats (early 80's)- this climb was an often climbed toprope by locals, but advent of Friends made it protectable for the lead FA.
