An interesting series of cracks in a corner located midway between Pink Flamingo and Anasazi. The width goes from thin hands to hands to fingers to fists and back down to hands and thin hands. No real crux, though the .5 camalot section was the psychological highlight for me (but isn't it always?).
12 Pieces of the following sizes: Tips (x1), Off-fingers (x2), thin hands (x5), hands (x2), fists (x1), OW (x1).

I enjoyed this route!!!! unique for the creek, while it doesn't have any true crux move or section, you will for sure feel the burn moving from one crack to another...

I climbed this route yesterday and would like to pass along some helpful beta. If you are a mid-10 leader at The Creek like me, I would start on the left (not the right like it says in Doc Bloom's book). Move to the right when the crack starts getting real tight, then move back to the left at the next easier opportunity to do it (where the .75 splitter starts turning to the right). It's a great crack but starting on the right is kind of chossy and harder than it looks and certainly harder than 10-.

Very fun route! Not your typical "robotic" climb. It gets a little weird in the sandy section.

A bit of a sandbag at 10-. At least for Supercrack Buttress.
