Crack climbing is type two fun. It’s physically challenging and emotionally exhausting. You leave with scars, bruises & tears. It’s the masochism of it all that makes getting to the top worthwhile. The primal celebration is much more meaningful when the battle is literally a vertical climb.

We can see that while the crack may not be forgiving - the summit is worth the struggle.
