Description

A local favorite for sure... At the left end of the cliff before you get to the slab look for a nice big flake near the top of the cliff on a white face... That is the key feature on Creatures Creation...

Start as for Powder Puff up the layback corner 10 feet right of Little Overhang... Climb the slab above heading for the white face and the nice flake... Mantle a 2" wide ledge and gain the left facing flake... Climb the flake and mantel to a slightly better stance on a small ledge... Climb up and left to meet Tippy Toe Slab and on to the Top...

Some times i pick a route just by looking at one feature on the climb and saying i want to touch that... The big flake on Creatures is like that, you can see it from the ground and you just want to grab it...

Great lead. The whole upper wall of this climb is excellent. I think calling this PG13 is too strong as long as you have a large cam to protect at the flake (I used a #4. Looked like a #3 would probably work too). It may feel a little bit PG because it's committing and you can't see the holds above you, but the fall would be totally fine. Jul 4, 2017

Good description and a good route. The mantle move off the desirable flake looked spicy on lead. Thompson took it like a champ though hahah Apr 15, 2009
