JP doing battle with his first 5.11 onsight.
This route is one of the more consitent off-fingers routes at indian creek. It is also one of the better quality corners to be had at this cliff.
Find a well-chalked left-facing off-fingers crack in a dark rock area, just a ways right of Dawn Of An Age, and left of the namesake Blue Gramma pitch. Run up sustained off-hands (too thin) and finger stacks with laybacks, pumping with few rests for 90' to the anchors. SWEET.
People with sausage-like fingers may find it easier, but skinny fingered climbers will find it hard. It's moves and dark varnish texture are both reminiscent of The Wave - this route may be shorter, but seems pumpy, for lack of rests and thinner size.
Small cams and TCU's , mostly 1" and 1.5"

5 x .5 2 x .75 and 1 x 2 cammolts. I have super fat fingers so they fight tight yet I layed the corner back and found two full on stemming no hands rests. Despite being a bit short I agree this is one og the best finger corners at the creek that I have been on thus far.

I wouldn't say this climb is sustained. My legs were more burnt than my arms. Lots of foot holds and stemming leads to a section of blank walls. Put a cam in up high and go for it, you will be rewarded.A. Everhart

I found a lot more green C4s than purple on this route, the first 10 feet of the splitter, then another short section up higher was purple, then the rest was green. I did it with 1 gray, 2 purples, 3 greens, 1 red, and 1 yellow (in that order).
