Me at the top of a nice sewn up crack!

Description 

I've never seen this route named, so I'm taking the liberty. All the routes on this wall are good, and although it's pretty easy, its one of the better ones. The only route that's all trad. Good pro, and one awkward move...


Location 

The obvious, wide crack immediately right of Mr. Meanor.


Protection 

Small Stoppers, mid to large size cams

already a "Safecracker" in this area.

...Ahhh, but he is naming this one "Safe Cracker", not "Safecracker". Play one the first route, or play on any of the variety of meanings of the word "cracker"? For instance, I am almost certainly a "cracker", and may be safe, but is that the type of cracker to which he refers?? O.K., just being silly, but it really isn't the same name.

Very fun route! The gear is bomber and you can pretty much plug it in as often as you want/need. This does have a few tougher moves (I climbed it twice more on TR after leading it just to make sure the I took the path of least resistance the first time and could not find a better sequence. I would say it is mostly 5.6 but there are 2 spots with 5.7(-) moves. This would make an awesome 1st trad lead.

Great lead. The hardest part is the start which is a fairly awkward mantle move onto a ledge (although not that difficult really). The entire route protects well and is a great place to work on gear placements.
