Unknown climber.

Description 

Starts on top of a small block with tight hands in a flare which quickly go to hands and big hands. Pull up into a large cave below the "tooth". Move out left and pull up over the "tooth". Finish up the narrowing left-facing offset to the anchors.


Location 

Starts towards the right side of the wall. Look for the distinctive broken roof and tight hands in a flare start. Great looking line.


Protection 

Three of everything from .5 camalot to 3 camalot. And a 4 and/or 4.5 camalot.

This is a brilliant climb! One of my favorites in the Creek. It can be a heart breaker getting shut down at the crux (which is the last 4 feet before the anchors).

Wow that is tough. The tight corner isn't easy. Pulling the roof to establish on the tooth isn't easy and finishing the .75 to .5 corner would be really rough to jam in good style. I had to lieback ig time to finish this one.

One of the best in the Creek. An awesome rest in the cave after the pumpy start, a unique tooth-wrassling sequence to a good stance, then a pumpy and sustained off-fingers finish to the chains. Superb!

One of the most interesting pitches in Indian Creek, in my opinion. Engaging and fun as hell from bottom to top.
