Height of route: 150'
Overview
A challenging 5.10, Sacherer Cracker offers fantastic moves over a strenuous 150' pitch. After an awkward start, the route takes a long splitter crack that gradually widens from fingers to off-width. Though there is a 5.10a crux down low, it is the 5.9 off-width at the top that gets most climbers' attention. Few if any cams can protect this section. Your best bet is to bring off-width skills and commit to the brief but intense wide moves.
