Kiddy Crack
Mona's friend (?)
Photo by Al Hospers
Directions:  The right-most crack at the North End.
Description: If it's dry, it's not bad. If it's wet or damp, it's a bear. This one has embarrassed many overconfident climbers.
    Pitch 1: Power-layback the crack to the ledge, then follow the crack to the top.

Gear: standard rack
Descent: rappel from 2-bolt anchor on Child's Play
History:  October 27,1972 - Bob Anderson soloed the initial part. The rest was done at an unknown later date.
