Access Issue: RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Description

This route is about 20ft. left of "Trip to the Vet" and is the thin, right facing tips corner. Somewhat slabby with a few edges for feet make this route feel a bit more secure. The gear is good, but a little spaced in places. There is a gear anchor with webbing about 60ft. up.

Protection

thin gear to finger size. Aliens are useful.

The bottom 2/3 of this route are total fun and not hard at all (5.9-) but then comes the crux. A few small nuts would be well-placed at the bottom of each of the chalked-up "tips" crimps in the corner. Yeah, tips, whatever... more like a #3-#4 BD stopper. The tiny, red micro-camalot is the perfect gear for aiding the crux move.
It appeared to me that stemming is key on this route, but I am not sure because I got totally rejected. But I flashed a few 11+ routes last trip. In fact, this is the only Indian Creek "5.11+" that I have ever been unable to do the moves on. Can we give it 5.12-? Wait a minute... I've never been on a I.C. 5.12- that I couldn't do the moves on either! Nov 20, 2006

kind of a 2 move hard layback. hard to grade as it is easy except for these 2 moves, where you have to bear down pretty hard. a minor toe divot aids the layback slightly. ballnuts useful here. Nov 30, 2009
