Rock Canyon – Main Crack
Rock Canyon – Ed and Terry Wall – Main Crack – 5.7 – ***
This is the easily viewable crack from the parking lot on the middle section of the Ed and Terry wall.
Approach the crack by heading up to the top of the Red Slab and then working your way up a forth class scramble to the top. There may or may not be a hand line to follow to the top. Climbers of the Ed and Terry wall must be very careful as it is easy to send rocks down on the climbers of the Red Slab.
I have done this as a one pitch climb with a 60m rope. The rope will not quite reach the bottom when being lowered and will require a little down climbing but is not too difficult.
A standard rack is somewhat useless as this climb eats up 2’s and 3’s. When climbing start by using what small gear you can and save the 2’s and 3’s for the second half of the climb.
The crux is just before the overhang. Start the crux on the right side of the crack and then move to the block on the left side. Look for a key hold at the peak of the overhang on the right side of the crack.
The second half of the climb cruises and has plenty of features on the face. There are chains at the top.
