Description:

This cracks a tough climb. Can be TR after climbing Hinterlands Highway. The name is kind of a misnomer. The "crack" is really just a seam that you can gain a few sidepulls and gastons from. Mostly a thin, technical slab climb. Note-I think the girl this was named after is Nicky Dyal, so it should be spelled Nicky's Crack.

I did it on TR and got it clean, but havent been able to lead it yet. On my list of return routes. Seems to be very sequential, if you dont get it right, your off.
