Comments: Dihedral crack above the the first roof is home to a nest of angry looking wasps.

Comments: WARNING: there is still a large bees nest in the crack system directly right of this that shares the same anchor. Looked like honey bees rather then wasps, but hard to say. Super active once the wall heats up.

Comments: Pitches 2 and 3 are stellar, steep crack climbing. 3+ stars for those pitches alone. The rest of the route is moderate and not of the same quality. With its short pitches and in your face (re: splitter!) cruxes, this route is reminiscent of Eldo with a little granite flavor. The gear is excellent where you want it and the climbing moderate where its not. Overall, a worthy outing. Thanks for finding this, Josh!

Comments: Just did the first pitch of this on accident today thinking it was The Big Steep. It's not, but it's good! Sustained with a definitive crux at the last bolt.

Comments: Amazing line. Some beta for the faint of heart. After schlepping our "too scared to aid clean" insurance policy through the Boulderfield to the Chasm View raps and beyond, my partner led the aid crux (and all of the harder aid for that matter, as I was the alleged free climbing gun), totally clean with camhooks at what he felt to be straightforward C2+. I believe we had 1 small and 2 medium camhooks. We never found a need for ballnuts either. Triple set of HB offsets was mighty plush and I th... more >>

Comments: This is one of my favorite pitches at the Creek. It is varied and has a little bit of everything, including a sporty finish if you dare use the super soft face holds outside the finger crack. This thing is proper 5.11, but perhaps sandbagged when compared to the typical 5.11 IC fare. Thanks Alf, enjoyed the tour on Party Ledge!

Comments: This sounds like a great 1st day option for a 2 day trip up to the Chasm Cirque, especially with the 11am route start time. Did the Directissima on the Chasm View last year followed by Pervertical the next day. That trip was probably my favorite from last summer. Steve, any other route suggestions in the park?

Comments: This route is amazing. We climbed this on 3/11/09 and although we did the 5.8 variation 1st pitch, I had a look at the .11+ first pitch after rapping and found no fixed nut to speak of. Judging from the photos it looked as though it should be right around the beginning to middle of the A-frame. Might want to bring some small nuts to make that placement.

Comments: Anyone know anything about the long time bolting project going on across the canyon from the normal bolted walls here? There is a portaledge at what looks to be 5 - 7 pitches up and fixed lines getting there as of Jan. 08.
