Approach to Cracked Canyon was a wobbly scree slope from hell.
The book says:
This unique cliff area has the highest concentration of climbs in the entire region. High quality routes in a wide range of difficulties are abundant here, making Cracked Canyon the area's most popular crag. A fantastic place for beginners as well as accomplished climbers. Many find the approach to be a grind, but it is easily worth the effort. Park 100 yards east of the post office and hike the steep boulder field. There are a few climber's trails to choose from, all of which seem to be equally treacherous. Be careful on this approach - it can be dangerous! The floor of the canyon is full of talus, a lot of which is waiting to be sent tumbling down by unsuspecting climbers. Be on the alert at all times for rocks which may be sent down the canyon without warning! When walking about it is far too easy to send dangerous rocks tumbling down upon those below you, and dogs are some of the best progenitors of this unwanted trundling. When rocks get going in here there are few places to hide from their deadly, erratic behavior.
