Rumbling Bald, Cereal Buttress
great, classic, gneiss cracks. in beautiful gneiss rock.

some stuff on the East Face of Table Rock, in Linville Gorge.
Also, in Linville, the ampitheatre has a few classic crack climbs in a wilderness setting you wont find anywhere else.

Looking Glass also has some beautiful cracks. and a piss ton of small flared horizontal ones. (the infamous eyebrows)

the new has some great cracks too, but i'm impartial to NC.

haha dude check out the spiders web in keene valley, all it is is overhanging cracks. the best craig in the adirondacks. id make sure you get on TR and live free or die. if you want more info pm me. ive also read about the 5 star crack on cranberry lake, catatonic


I second Catatonic. I proposed to my wife at the top of this route in 2003. To bad I'm not a 5.11 climber or I could have snagged the FA. However, it is a hell of a hike for this one route, there is one other back there and the rest is dirty and unappealing.

For the most-part, NC does not have a ton of super crack climbing. There are some good cracks, but few areas that have a high concentration of quality crack routes. T-wall and NRG are much better bets for crack climbing.

I don't think this word means what you think it means.
