.75 camalots protect the opening moves.

Great route and quite sustained. My right foot was feeling it after all the non-stop foot jamming.

take a lot of #2 camalots and a few 3s. A couple small cams works for the lower portion,

Unbelieveable! A narrow hand crack on a vertical section leads to a looong sloped dihedral with a perfect hand crack. Ooohh that belay. Sustained. Solid for the grade

This is a really fun climb. Take one or two blues for good measure. My 8 year old daughter Sasha had a blast on it.

Wonderful confidence booster for someone new to cracks.(Also one of the more mellow approaches. Be sure to take the SECOND trail past the CC campsite, past the first big wash, through the desert just a bit. Good cairns the whole way!) Butter hand crack love for the rest of us! Love, love the tight hands on the first section. Get there early for good pics, as the dihedral gets early afternoon shadows. Yum yum, give me some!:)

Mixed feelings about this one. It is a decent route and one of the few .9s at Indian Creek so it draws a crowd, but I found it terribly painful on the feet. Easier on the shoulders sure but that off vert ramp was more discomfort than fun for me.

Also, I recall it being more blue camalots than the one suggested here. Tougher for the small handed crowd.

Sustained perfect hand crack that goes on forever (almost like the little sister of Incredible Handcrack, but without the roof!) Super sweet. And Sustained. Takes a few small cams at the bottom, and mucho #2 gold camelots (8 to 10+ pieces depending on your comfort level). Plus one #3 right before the chains.

It's more like 5.9- in terms of technical difficulty but the incredible sustained nature of the climb makes it a solid 9 for sure. A sweet delight.

Awesome climb! Perfect for building confidence on sustained terrain.

There is a beautiful looking long corner to splitter between here and Ed's World. I couldn't tell if there were anchors at the top. Has anyone climbed up there?
