So it's July and far too hot for well adjusted people to be climbing in the Creek, but like many crack addicts that doesn't mean I'm not thinking about. I was musing about some long term goals and I thought it might be cool to someday climb all the namesake routes in the Creek. That is to say, any route that was/is so good and popular the whole crag got named after it.

Anyway, it's not always clear what route is the namesake for each cliff and some cliffs simply don't have them, but here is what I've figured out so far. Please feel free to tell me where I'm wrong.

More popular/famous cliffs:
Supercrack 5.10
4x4 5.11-
Scarface 5.11-
Battle of the Bulge 5.11

Broken Tooth 5.12-
Way Rambo 5.12-
CriticÂ’s Choice 5.12
Pistol Whipped 5.12
Power Line 5.12
