Description

This stellar left facing dihedral is located about 30 yards left of Pente. This is not in the guidebook but there is a plague at the base which identifies the route. There are 5.12 routes on both the left and right of Raja. Can be done with a single 60m rope. The route starts very thin (blue TCUs) with no real feet for the first 15' : this is probably the technical crux of the route. A number of good rests are interspersed between strenous thin layback sections for the rest of the way

Protection

lots of TCUs (blue, yellow, and orange sizes), as well as a few #.75, 1, and 2s for the occasional wider parts. Basically a mix of sizes with an emphasis on TCUs

The rack for this: 7-8 BD .3 (or equivalent - blue metoli or green alien) pieces (half for the start, half for the finish), 3 BD .4, 1 each of .5-#3. So varied, so fun. The anchors are now nice chains on two pins and a shiny bolt. Thanks, Sam F. and ASCA! Mar 30, 2015

If you have bigger fingers the beginning of this route is full bore - a power liebacking sprint. My girlfriend with smaller fingers then did it and just casually hiked the beginning - she said she would comfortably solo it! A good reminder of the "individual" nature of Indian Creek grades! Otherwise this is a worthy route, with a couple of good rests. Apr 6, 2008
