OverviewFA: Warren Harding, 1950s.
The Left Water Crack was the single most popular route in Tuolumne for decades. The most obvious moderate route in the
Meadows, the Left Water Crack is a wide
groove with staircase-like steps formed by
thousands of years of water coursing down
the dome. Awkward, strange, weird, and runout, itís one of the few routes where many people deliberately use their knees. Itís possible to start up the right crack then make a big step left to the left crack, or you can start low in the left crack. A couple bolts can be clipped either from the left or right cracks.
