Description

Slippery Peak is far up First Creek on the south side of the streambed. It is a small subsidiary summit jutting out of the complex north face of Indecison Peak. From certain angles it presents a striking, spire-like profile. The climbs fall into two areas. The low-angle Slippery Peak Apron features slab climbs on rock that ranges from excellent to worrisome. On the upper peak itself, the climbing steeper.

Getting There

Follow First Creek Trail towards Lotta Balls area but stay down in the drainage when trail splits to go up towards Lotta Balls Wall. You will be in and out of wash and there are occasional trail markers to guide you. A short distance upstream from the First Creek Slabs, the primary trail does a significant detour onto the south wall of the canyon. Continue until you are right underneath the red slabs. There is an overgrown climber trail that heads up to the wall on the left. The approach was tough with some boulder to climb over and a lot of growth on the trail. About 1.5 hours.
