Best top rope crack climbs
« on: March 31, 2003, 02:54:12 PM »
Can any of you fine folk suggest good, top-ropable crack climbs in the 5.6 - 5.8 range?  I started climbing last summer and have mainly worked on slabs and face climbs -- definitely want to work on cracks this season.  Any suggestions would be appreciated!

let's see...well, I would reccommend the North End at Cathedral Ledge. It's basically all cracks in the 5.6 to 5.10 range, and all of them are top-robeable. Pawtuckaway State Park has some good climbs in that range as well. Good luck

The upper left section of Woodchuck (playground or some such) has a few good short cracks. They were clean and fun and 5.4-5.7. The walk in will be the crux.

I definitely second the North End.  If you want to work on harder stuff, you can climb Beelzebub (5.4) on the South Buttress of Whitehorse and set up a top rope for Ethereal Crack and Seventh Seal...both relatively stiff 5.10 cracks.
