A.D.D. is the flake on the right that rises to mee...
What were we just talking about?
This is the junior-sized line cowering beneath monumental neighbors Sinestra and Meat Hooks. Worm up a left-facing OW flake until it necks down through fists to less-than-hands and arches over to the left; at this point avail yourself of the adjacent fingercrack and crank up to the anchors.
This route had some chalk on it, as it can be TR'ed from the Sinestra anchor, as well as a baby-angle scar up in the fingers section. We figured it deserved an independent anchor and a name. Like Laura said, "as soon as you get tired of one size, it changes". In a neighborhood of single-minded endurance climbs, the moniker of ADD seemed apt.
The skinny-crack direct is topropable (for us); it's about 11+ and purple TCU-sized through the biz. The block doesn't move, much.
Where is this thing?
Just right of Sinestra.
The remnants of what may be the Creek's shortest-lived plaque may be found atop the 6' high starting pillar: ^ DD 0+
One each from #4 camalot on down to fingers; you'll probably want 2-3 yellow TCU-sized jobs, and perhaps (2)x 4.0 down low.

I broke the plaque when the top 3' of the starting pillar came off when I started up this in last April, and the big block I pulled off smashed the plaque. I felt really bad about it, and took a ground fall in the process, but fortunately the big block didn't land on me!

Dude you totally should have protected the plaque by placing your body between the pillar and the plaque. Bones grow back, plaques don't....... :)
