Classic, perfect, splitter hands on the wall just around the corner from Way Rambo.


Camalots: 3x #2 & 3x #3

This route is great! The curvature of the crack at the bottom makes this one interesting. The hands are perfect. This is a must if you are at Way Rambo. Mar 24, 2005

Definitely a sweet pitch. Awesome warm up!! Shady in the morning May 12, 2006
From the anchor, with a directional or two you can toprope the dihedral to the left. Probably 12- with some really desperate tip-liebacking. Jan 29, 2008

The dihedral to the left was a really fun TR, did it back in '04 or'05. I would agree that .12- seems about right. Wonder if it's been lead? Aug 18, 2008

I was kinda hung over when I got on this, but it was still a highlight of the trip. If you have kinda largish hands, DO NOT MISS THIS CLIMB! It's a beautiful little cruise on beautiful rock. Sep 21, 2008
sweet route! I don't have large hands and I thought the jams were perfect. The last 10-15 feet after the rest I thought the hands would be difficult because the hands would be big, but I didn't have any problems. All the jams felt great. On supercrack the hands definately get a little rattely. Dec 3, 2008
Spectacular route. YMMV, but I'd go a bit heavier on #2 camalots and lighter on the #3's (maybe 4 or 5 and 2, respectively). Nov 3, 2009

Super fun route. Wish it was longer. Solid hands for me the whole way (blues and yellows) with a nice foot hold a bit before the anchor to rest on. Great route and a really cool area. Apr 20, 2012
What a great route! Beautiful to look at and to climb. I found it easier than chocolate corner, a great intro to creek climbing if you have large-ish hands. Might be more fun than supercrack, they're very similar in size but this one seems less mechanical. Apr 4, 2013

Top 10 indian creek splitters for me. Still dreaming about the hand jams. DO THIS CLIMB! It takes a #1 camalot at the beginning if you need to save the #2's Aug 13, 2014

Even as a small handed human who prefers jamming #1 sized cracks, I couldn't believe how secure and enjoyable the jamming felt on this route. Loved it! The crux for me was probably the top 5 feet where it widens slightly, but you have a rest before it and bomber foot jams. Definitely a must-do, for beginner leaders especially. Dec 4, 2015

This is the hand crack I was looking for. Supercrack was a bit baggy, but Blue Sun was perfect! Plus, there's some funny chimney moves to be done down low, which rocked. I brought more #2s than the 2013 guide book suggested.... Dec 11, 2018
