"The Generator Crack of Tuolumne". An obvious, splitter off-width crack with a slightly overhanging, fists crux.

The crag is 30 seconds from the road, and also features a short face climbing TR.

Getting There 

Galen's crack is about half of a mile down the road (heading West) past Lamb Dome, or somewhere after Low Profile Dome if you're heading East. There's a small pullout to park in...you should be able to see the obvious splitter crack from your car.

Obvious, splitter OW. The bottom part of the climb is slightly overhanging, and goes from hands to fists (the crux).Pulling through the fists crux, then thrutching a ways will eventually land you in more straight forward OW technique (likely left side in) about halfway up the crack, with jugs on the outside near the top.Occasionally there are some hidden holds inside the crack as well....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
