Greg Jackson guns for arena thrash success on nine...
This is one of my favorites. Starts out good hands and slowly narrows to thin hands and eventually fingerstacks, which is the crux. It then pulls a cool traverse to a rest and finishes on a #3 Camalot sized crack through a roof. This route is found on the leftmost prow of Cat Wall. Don't miss it!
Heavy on hands, thin hands, and wide fingers sizes. A few smaller pieces but nothing micro or bigger than a #3 Camalot.

this might just be the best 12a pitch on thr planet - it's long and has everything from fingers to fists to face climbing. Huck the gnar!

(warning: more grade wankery at the creek)
This is one of the all time best routes I've done at the Creek. I've got to say that, unless blue camalots are perfect hands for you, there is no way that this is .12a. Even the .11+ rating in Bloom's guide seems pretty generous.

I didn't realize there were grades at the creek?

This is most definitely not 5.12 or 5.11+ for that matter. Its just good and pumpy, I would rate it a solid 5.11.

One of the best. Casual for little hands – pumpy for avg hands. The finish is the icing on the cake. Not cruxy but awesome.

Soooo good. Solid 11. You will be smiling ear to ear when you finish this pitch.

This is a far cry from 5.12!! I think 5.11b/c is good.. There is not one single hard move on it, and when it gets thin before the ledge, you get 2 bomber jams to rest and place (if you want) from.
Best route in the creek!!

this is a good route, but there are 2 things that detract from it being on my 5 star mega route list - length (my 5 star rating requires 150 feet), and the bivy ledge near the top (no rest for the wicked). but this still isn't enough detraction for me to gladly give it 4 stars on MP. a really fun route.
