3 out of 5 stars Tennis Shoe Crack Quick Tips

Easy climb for almost anybody; I'd say it's flashable by a real-rock rookie. Start with your hands as high on the crack as you can where it cuts to the right; this vertical hold is pretty juggy. Work your feet up to first the smaller toe-hold on the right then try to get both feet on the ledge. From there, you can slowly follow the crack with your hands until you can place your right foot into the corner that the crack forms. After that, you can use your right leg to push yourself up to the crimp near the top. It's an easy top-out from there.

2 out of 5 stars Good hand crack.

This is a good crack for getting used to laybacking and fist and hand jamming.
