This is the obvious crack that goes to the top of West Rock #1. The bottome is a little mungy but the top is fantastic.

5 out of 5 stars great crack climb at top

cleaned this one. I agree with the "mungy" start. the last 1/3 of the climb is superb though. layback, oposing hands, hand jam...whatever technique you want to practice...it's there. great exposure from my limited experience as well.

5 out of 5 stars Alien Moves

This is a fantastic climb with lots of classic moves on it. The top requires some unique movement but is really fun.
