Wallaby Crack is the crack in the center. Photo by...


This is the first crack system on the left side of the east face. It becomes a chimney near the top. It's has a strenuous start. All in all a good warm-up for a day's climbing.

"Wallaby Crack" is a wee bit more difficult than 5.8.

Surprisingly good moves and the short approach makes this a worthwhile tick.

Tricky start.

Tricky overhung start to get your feet 6' up (feels 5.8+) but moves to solid jams for the next 20 feet. Then the typical josh "what the he!!" sets in at a OW maybe 40' up. If you have a 4-5" piece and longs arms set something way back in the offwidth and hope your second can get it out. OW or semi-stem up another 8' or so and get to the top crack to set some good hand sized pieces for belay.

The start (first 10 feet) is harder than 5.8; I'd give it a 5.9- and is strenuous.
