Description:

Climb a right-facing corner a ways right of Generic Crack, and just left of Let 'er Buck (the only bolted sport route at the Creek). Look for "Binou's Crack" etched on the wall at the base. Nice thin hands to fingers, with a weird wider section up high on the face to the left that would take a 5" cam if really really yearning to tote one up. Not really needed, as there's good pro in the dihedral crack the whole way. One of the best easy routes at Indian Creek.

Descent Options:

Rap.

4 out of 5 stars Interesting variety of moves on climb

liked it, but it's getting polished. May need to call it "Been Used Crack" in a few more years.

4 out of 5 stars Good Warmup

This is a great climb to get an intro to the Creek. Pretty akward up high I thought but not strenuous or insecure.
