|Mill Creek Crag
Begin just right of the fully trad route called Roof Rack, which is the roof and corner system. Scantily Trad should be obvious with its five bolts leading to a headwall crack. The rock on ST is excellent. Hard and continuously devious climbing begins at clip two and remains complex and powerful until halfway through the crack above. While there are hard sequences at each bolt but # 1, getting to and past bolts 3 and 4 sets up a long and complex crux. Having the draws in place saves some major pump. ST gets full southwest sun after 1:00pm and is climbable well past sunset.
ST was established to give me a route to train on and has not seen a continuous ascent as of mid-June 2013.
Scantily Trad starts just RIGHT of Roof Rack. Jug Haul starts off a bolt but is LEFT of Roof Rack.
Five draws, a few small cams, and/or wired stoppers. Double bolt anchor at the top.
Not Rifle but still steep.

While ST is training project for myself and has not seen a red point ascent, it has been posted in response to several inquires concerning the order of routes in this sector. Burn it up; it's hard and lead-able.
