The Grack, Center, Glacier Point Apron 5.6
Avg time to climb route: 2 hours
Approach time: 15 minutes
Descent time: 30 minutes
Number of pitches: 3
Height of route: 400'
OverviewThis is the best 5.6 in Yosemite. Such incredible moderate crack climbing is rare, which makes the route extremely popular. This climb is well-protected until 15 feet of unprotected 5.6 friction at the top that spooks out those unaccustomed to lowangle holdless climbing. The route faces east and is very hot on summer mornings but bearable by the afternoon. Temperatures in the spring and fall are ideal. If too crowded, climb The Grack, Left Side, or The Cow.
