  • Description 

    Manufractured follows the artificial crack that begins 15 or 20 feet up. Get to the crack via two drilled pockets that are hard to see from the ground, and then grind through the painful 1-knuckle finger jams to the top. One of the most unique routes you will ever climb.

    Location 

    Roughly halfway between El Crackitan and Coleman's Crack. Look for the obviously man-made and bolted crack with a high first bolt.

    Protection 

    5 bolts of dubious quality. All of them spin except for the first, and while the hangers are shiny, the bolts themselves are assuredly not. Supplementing with a small cam on the way to bolt #1 might not be a bad idea.

    Tape, Tape, Tape. This thing was one of my hardest climbs redpointed back in the day. At the time I thought the crux of the thing was climbing through the pain of the jams. Back in 96 or 97 I supplemented the bolts with a couple of stoppers. One of the middle bolts didn't even look good then.

    Tape your tips and you will still be bloody, but it beats the alternative.
