Description Suggest change

Splash starts off the ledge on the right side of the block. Squeeze behind the block to a belay anchor. Splash heads up the west face of the block and on to the main wall proper. Two clips and a thinish 5.11c/d move initiate the route and dust the crux. Jog left above the block and immediately jog back right to head up on more moderate terrain. A bit run out higher up, but the climbing eases back to 5.9. Good continuous climbing on largely fine rock that has been well bolted give the line two stars. Splash is route number 10 in Rolofson's guide to Clear Creek. Since it begins on the mid-level ledge, use one of the approach pitches. Starting up on Grilled Trout (#3, out of the water), lands you at the base of Splash without scrambling the ledge and makes for a logical two pitch climb.

Protection Suggest change

QD only. This 70ft route needs 9 - 10 draws and something for the two bolt anchor at the top.
