Indian Creek: A Climbing Guide



Bloom, David. 2004 Indian Creek: A Climbing Guide
Pure and unvarying, the symmetrical splitters and varnished right-angled corners of Indian Creek approach a Platonic ideal of crack climbing. David Bloom's decade of research has unearthed nearly a thousand routes conveyed here through color photos, cliff topos, and detailed descriptions. Pioneering and current Indian Creek climbers contribute essays from tales of towers to lack of power to the brashness of maiden voyages in an age before Friends. Color photographs from a host of talented photographers capture the beauty of the region and athleticism of the climbs.
