Mike's Crack is closer to 30 feet. It's fun and surprisingly pumpy. Solid gear is available throughout the route. I placed nothing larger than a .75 C4.

Edit (3/2016): I climbed this thing again. It might be 40 feet. More importantly: this route is FUN! Maybe my favorite 5.10 at Sam's. The gear is small but solid and plentiful. Every time you need a jug, you get one.
