The book describes the route as thin hands to tips, but it really goes thin hands to tips and then gradually widens to big hands. There is one drilled pin in the middle, right before the tips.

Indian Creek has long been well-known for having quite a few "easy" 5.12-'s. Way Rambo, Nine Lives, Coyne Crack, Sig Sauer, Dos Hermanos, Annunaki, Middle Crack, Gurka, and so on. If you are looking for one of these easier routes to get that 5.12- crack on your ticklist, THEN STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM THIS ROUTE!
Excellent route, though, all the same.

probably the perfect 12- benchmark at the creek. not the easiest, not the hardest, but surely the best. 5 star mega classic for sure - you need 2 ropes to get off, there are no ledges, the position is unparalleled, the climbing is brilliant. the best pitch i have climbed at the creek, and possibly the best pitch i have ever climbed period.
