Description 

McCrackens classic line.

Techno-endurance climbing that will eat your lunch.
Begin off a large rock stack and pull some precarious moves on a sloping ledge until you get established onto your feet.

From here follow the obvious right leaning crack that runs up the line. Some hand sequencing is useful to negotiate this portion efficiently.

Climb into a recessed portion of rock where you can prepare for the in your face crux.

From here climb up some easier (in comparison) terrain to a fun finish on an arete.

Stout for the grade. Tough to onsight.

Location 

Starts on the second rockstack (on the left) as you walk into the crag.

Look for the obvious crack feature that runs towards the right.

Protection 

Bolts
