Comments: Ditto on the direct but cant relate to the scary original(backed down from fear of dying, your gon die) be sure to bring the ultra small gear for direct, and sport mentality.

Comments: Indian Creek grade would probably stand true at 9+. Its so varied that it may not warrant a 10, and very short for creek standards. And about pro, I soloed it last time I was there so you don't need gear at all. TOOT TOOT, yep that's my own horn. My friends felt good with(camalots) 1-1 3-2 2-3 and 1-3.5 and that's about every 6.5 feet. And they all agreed the top felt hard.

Comments: Adventure sport climbing at its best. This place is an amazing piece of geography. Honestly I hope to never see a guide book, it would turn into a zoo. Good Luck.
P.S. I liked the old description.

Comments: Classic Outing here. Dont be intimidated, all gear is good, dont think a PG is needed. Sorry Tony B. Break down in 4 pitches is best to avoid rope drag and makes one of the cruxes better to cope with.
1st belay on first ledge, quite spacious and beachy.
2nd on next ledge.
3rd hanging below roof.
Possible to link into just two pitches but I would advise double ropes for this. Upper crux is obvious and heinous, but a blast. With one last note, 3.5 and 4 old camalots work great up high and watch ... more >>

Comments: The ole RRG 9+! what a fantastic adventure. After climbing 8+ and 9+ in the Red, most places feel soft. Fantastic sandbagging goin on in the early days. Jungle Beat is the classic multipitch in the Red, next to the Quest. Watch those 8+ grades. They are sure to pack a punch.

Comments: Couldn't agree with you more Nick. Think something might have broke on this one. Porter's grades are stiff but true.

Comments: There are some updates that need to take place on this page, so I will highlight them in this comment.
The Approach: You will find the campground on Castle Valley road about 1/4 to a 1/2 mile after the cattle guard in the road on the left. From the campground/parking lot hike up the wash following the cairns until you get to a dirt roa

Comments: Ben F, isnt it ironic that your teaching me to spell when you spelled Colorado with a K. Thought that I would point out the obvious.

Comments: Not to be a dick but the hunting closures at T-Wall are ridicous!! How many recreational areas close to just one group of people, obsured! I still give thanks to keeping this wonderful crag open. Although having a Road Warrior type bomb is the only way to feel safe here.

Comments: Let me finish the description for you.b Bring some long slings and slings and make this long pitch a memorable one. As your sitting on the ledge(trust me you'll be sitting) take a glance up into the void and start pondering your next moves. Step up into the flaring chimney and stem your way to the roof, lob in some gear and a long sling and stem as far as you can before you have to do powerful ab twisting stem switch to gain the massive flaring upper crack. Put in another big piece and chicken w... more >>
