Looking for some CRACK!
Crack-n-ups that is.  Anyone got a couple they are willing to part with?
Shoot me a PM.  Thanks

I thought they had been obviated by Tomahawks?

Doing some thin freeclimbing? Otherwise, I'd stick to peckers and tomahawks

I never understood how having a full on blade sticking out of a crack made sense for climbing.

I mean, what were you supposed to do, use one side until it bent and was damaged, then switch to the other side?

I have a #2 & a #3 I don't reckon I'll ever use. Negotiable.

If you put one upside down into the right crack, you have a big wall coat hanger!  :wink:

No worries, Bro. We're all in this together, right?

What are you planning using them for drapnea?

I just moved back to WA.  No specific route in mind.  Thought they might get some use in the PNW, but more likely on vacations now that I'm actually able to have some.  There were some untouched thin lines I was eyeballing while in Utah but now those are a bit too far away.  I have always been intrigued with crack'n ups and wanted to give them a try.  I've got some peckers, tomahawks, and other thin gear but why not give one of the originals a shot.  Damn though.  That #2 is flimsy.  I couldn't imagine a #1.  No wonder that tinfoil hook didn't get made in final production.
