This is the far left crack climb. It is 5.8 or so. Easy and straight forward but good for working your trad skills. Standard rack with nuts and mid to smaller cams.


Follow the marked trail to the base. This is the climb on the far left. Use the ramp to get to base of climb.

Route name is "Old Cranks" FA John Tuttle, Todd Vogel and Norman Boles 1978.

ps. Did the route today 9/23/17 with EricL and had a really good time. Route eats wired nuts (consider doubles) and small cams. One 5.7/8 lieback move but generally straightforward with good stances to place gear (nice job EricL). One fixed Leeper pin that we left years ago behind a small flake...probably not to be relied upon after nearly 40 years :).

You can easily traverse to the last bolts on Inferno from the final anchor of Old Cranks and cruise up to that anchor if you would like to top rope nearby climbs. Some straightforward 5.6 face with 2 bolts, well protected.
