Good looking crack

Description 

The most obvious natural weakness on the wall when viewed from afar, Six-Pack Crack begins in the large, right-facing corner above an easy chimney--there is a nice belay alcove for two at the top of the large flake, which forms the left margin of the chimney. Stem the corner, being sure not to miss great holds and good gear to one's right. A sizeable ledge then marks the start of the crack proper, which varies in size from fingers to fists, but takes great gear the entire way. A joy to lead and a great warm-up, though the approach alone should have sufficed. Descend from slings atop 12 oz. Curl with a single 60m.


Location 

The Six-Pack Crack is on the Beer Belly main face.


Protection 

Bring along a standard rack with some long runners; some may want to bring doubles in cams from fingers to fists.

Best 5.8 quartzite crack ever! a longer easier version of Goodros. Too bad its not accessible. 160' of sweet hands. a double rack in the bigger sizes is nice but nuts and small cam placements can be found on the lower sections. Gear belay off #3 camalots on nice ledge before the top is ideal.
