Mike Gray top roping Crackatoa.


Bottom and top feature tough moves. Likely a tougher climb than 5.9+. Will let the community vote the grade up.


On the left side of the main face, 10' right of the third class access ramp below a prominent crack.


Standard rack. Runout with tough moves to the first gear, and no gear for top crux.

I thought this was easy for a 9+ (but I only top-roped it so who knows.) Gear would definitely be sparse, but if it were cleaned up it would be an awesome, short route imo
