Dan Hughes climbing the splitter finger crack, Imm...


Wow! One of the best finger cracks in Indian Creek!

Pitch 1: Short pitch, head up the face to a ledge with a single bolt belay.

Pitch 2: Splitter Finger Crack (this is what you came for!), Starts out with .3 camalots to sustained .4 and .5 camalots, save a .3 camalot for the top.

Clip the bolted anchors and check to see how much skin is left on your fingers. You can lower all the way to the ground with a 70m rope.


Located to the right of Minute Man & The Womb, look for the pillar leaning against the wall with the striking finger crack above it.


(4).3 camalots, (6).4 camalots, (5).5 camalots, (1).75 camalot.

Add a couple hand size pieces for the approach pitch

And if you're in the area, keep hiking right to find "Mother" (13-) and "Shotgun Wedding" (12+).

Much respect to Trout Man for putting the work into this crag and discovering these classic lines.
