BETA PHOTO: Super Crack - Patriot Wall

Description 

Super Crack is the obvious large left facing corner at the Patriot Wall Super Crack area. Start in the offwidth section at the bottom or go up the slabby unprotected face until it becomes more of a crack. Follow the crack until you reach an undercling section (crux). Bust out right and up around the corner. Swim up the dirty gully until you can find a suitable tree to belay from.

This climb is often wet and as such doesn't get climbed too much. There are a few bushes that could use to be cleaned out of the way too.

Wait for a long period without rain in the late Fall and then head over and bag this one.

Location 

Left side of main section of the Patriot Wall
Easiest way down is to bushwhack and walk off right

Protection 

Standard rack favoring larger gear. No fixed anchors. Be careful how you run the rope for your second or for TR. If the rope runs through the upper crack it can get cut if your second has trouble at the crux. I found this out the hard way when I core shot my rope
