Description 

The Guide Cracks are 4 short cracks (60-70'). The right two cracks share a bolted anchor, and the left two cracks share another bolted anchor. Right to left the routes are 5.5, 5.7, 5.8, and 5.8.

All four routes are easily protectable with a modest rack. This is an ideal area for the aspiring trad leader to gain crack climbing experience.

I added route descriptions on three of the Guide Cracks as to provide a little more detail on the area. Based upon what I added this climb would be "Guide Crack #3". Since the consensus on this page is 5.7 this made the most sense to me.
