Redemption Crack follows a diagonal crack from the ground to top of Redemption Crag. This climb gets harder and harder as you make your way to the top. The crux is the final move, a step up from precarious footholds to a good ledge. A lack of handholds makes this move more challenging than the rest of the climb.


Note: this is not the same place as Redemption Rock. To find it, park in the redemption rock parking area and follow the Midstate trail north. It will cross the road and go uphill for about 5 mins until you run into the side of the crag. Follow the hikers' trail to the base.

Redemption crack is the obvious crack in the center of the wall.


A top rope can be set up from pine trees at top.

Lead this today. Gear is totally G-rated and route is better than most of the shorter routes at Crow Hill IMHO (except for Tom's Dilemma, of course). The crux before the top-out is made much easier with a perfect crimp on the left.
