Great splitter crack in red sandstone. Mostly a hand crack with occasional feature on the face. This is probably the best climb on the crag. Vandalized ("defaced") native american pictographs on panel nearby.

4 out of 5 stars Deface Crack

2nd time up in a matter of years. Excellent climb, prob the best at Bluff Street. Mostly #2's and #1's, a .75 and #4 is helpful. Pure style is not to use the adjacent wall. Requires a left layback out of the crack if you do it this way, towards the awkward finish. Small hand and toe jams required.

4 out of 5 stars Great crack

A little awkward right off the deck, but then widens for good hands. Takes bigger gear...
