Climbing Cracks

Crack climbing is a skill for real rock and these natural fissures in the rock that not only help us protect trad routes but also help us to ascend through jamming or utilising the crack in other ways to ascend it or the surrounding rock. Often the key here is to crack size, where dependant on the size of your hands, cracks will often be described as fingers, thin hands, hands, off-hands, fists and beyond to off-width.
