Cruising Cardiac Crack.

This is a separate crag from Da Butts. Originally, it was lumped in the Da Butts. For better organization, it is now separate.

It is mostly a secluded, 1-pitch crag with some notable climbs like Cardiac Crack, Wild West Show, Psycho Killer, Worst Error, and Southern Exposure. Climbing is mostly on the south and northeast faces.

There are nearby rocks called Almost Asshole, East Asshole Rocks, and Son of Asshole.

Getting There 

From Pine Junction, head South on CO 126 towards Pine. Go through Pine, past it by about 2 miles or so, you get to FR 550. (This is the turn off for Wellington Lake and the Castle.) Go left on FR 550. Go up about 1/4 mile till you see some yellow "no motor vehicles" signs. Park at the first one of these on the left. Walk down the old 4x4 trail behind the sign.

Expect about a 30 minute hike.

AREA: Want excellent crack, in a secluded area? This is a good crag...Asshole Rocks/South Platte. If you can find it, it's worth it. I put some info on the approach below that should help.ROUTE: Cardiac Crack is on the South face of Asshole Rock proper. I believe that this is the easiest route on the crag, at stiff 5.9+. It is a possible sandbag (IMO), but, mainly really sustained, and awkward. Definitely harder than Locksmith on Sphinx Rock, and about as sustained as pitch 2 of Center Rou...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
