About Cracked Wall:

This is arguably the most popular wall in the area. Although there's mostly sport routes, there's a couple mixed/trad routes available as well. If you're Top Roping, follow the trail up around the left side of the wall. Many, if not all of the routes on this wall can be top roped. Be careful not to knock loose rock down on the climbers below.
Approach: After passing the boulders, water tank, and "V" gate, continue to your left along the same trail many hikers use to ascend the mountain. Along the trail to the right a small sign directs climbers to the wall.
Approach Time: 10min
Latitude, Longitude: 35.30230, -120.69431
