Access Issue: Raptor Nesting Climbing Avoidance Areas Details
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


Tight hands and hands in a left facing corner. Clean dark rock and some face features make this a great first indian creek route.


Route is on the south side of crag out right. Starts from a ledge that is accessed via a sandy scramble on the left. Plaque.


Cams BD .75-2



dustin, did you leave those hideous sunglasses at the start of the route? as a side note, the sandy scramble is kind of like a dusty gully chimney. this would be a great creek first lead in a mice quiet setting. Nov 8, 2010

put up hot sex on a very hot hot hot day summer 07. its made for ''lets let you lead this one sweet cheeks'' Jan 5, 2011
Not a good first Creek lead, unless you have hands thinner than my wife's — and she has thin hands. She couldn't get hers inside most of the corner crack. Good thing the occasional crack on the right was wide enough for a jam. I thought it was a pretty strenuous route, but then everything out here is. Hiking up the drainage that separates Sinbad from Battle of Bulge walls (then going up the talus, directly to the climb) may be better than the half mile of loose, bouldery side-hilling we did after making the approach recommended to reach Sinbad routes.

Petroglyph on black varnished wall, just left (a few feet) of the beginning of climb.

A BD C4 #4 protects (in left, corner crack) the last ~12 feet perfectly. Oct 13, 2014

Upper half of the route is thin hands. I used several BD #1s and a 0.75. #4 is definitely useful near the top. Start is a bit wide and tricky. Good route! Nov 30, 2015
Enjoyed the route quite a bit. Fun start to a clean, low angle corner. Mostly #1s to some #2s. Definitely a 5.9 and not a sandbag. I replaced the carabiners on the chains with some new quick links. Dec 18, 2018
