Double Cracks starts just right of University of Santa Clara Practice Climb #1. It actually isn't two cracks down low - but one wide crack and two seams. Stay on the seams below the first bolt. After the bolt, work you way into the wide crack and pull over onto the ledge. Then up top follow the quality double crack system for another 15 feet to the bolts.


Takes gear up to 3.5" but don't need anything bigger than two inches. There's also one bolt about 15 feet off the ground.

Up top there are two bolts, but nothing to rap from, so walk off to the left when cleaning. This is also how you'd set up a top rope.

The main crack variation is fun if you like squeeze chimney or OW. This is the main crack that goes all the way up to the whale move onto the block in the middle of the climb.
