^ really? the leader took the photo while he was belaying the second up, that was back in the day before IC became another sport park, 'lower me bro!'. so yes, that photo is probably from the first ascent, and chuck g is a badass..

We always topped out on our first ascents in Indian Creek. We rarely used bolts as well. Half the adventure was finding our way day. And that always seemed to be after the sun went down. It was a special time there. Rarely did you see other climbers and if you did you likely knew them.
