BETA PHOTO: Mark at the top of another fun climb at Deep Creek...


A nice bouldery start gets you over the initial overhang to tri-pockets. Continue up through some balancy, technical face climbing to a rest ledge. Steeper climbing on jugs takes you to the anchors below the last roof.

The last holds are positive, but falling while clipping the anchors would almost certainly land you on the ledge below. Be careful! If there's any doubt, you could take a long sling and hang it from the anchors. This would let you make the clip with less rope out.


Tea & Crumpets wall, near the approach trail. It's the 4th bolted line to the right of the Farmer Slab.


5 bolts, cold shuts below the last roof. Stick clip.

A cam (BD #1 or 2) in the horizontal before the shuts can provide some mental relief, but the moves up there aren't hard.
