Indian Creek comes to North Wales! Perfect hands to a good rest, then wide hands to the top. Amazingly, first ascent is attributed to Siegfried Herford in 1913.


Climb is on far R side of crag. This is the obvious arrow-straight crack just right of a huge flake (Flake Crack). Start by climbing on to a pedestal 8' off the ground, then follow the crack. Descent is on R of crag (facing in) or down unpleasant gully just L of the climb.


Cams: 3 x 2.5, 2 x 3, 3.5, 4.0 make it very safe.
