DescriptionThis is a fun, left-angling, single-pitch crack climb located climber's right of Tom Stubb's Memorial Route.
It has very enjoyable movement on less-than-stellar sandstone. A PG-13 rating based on the poor rock quality in some sections of this pitch. It's Monument, not Indian Creek.
The crux might be hand-size and reach dependent. At 5'3" with small hands, I found the steep section shortly below the anchor the crux (1-2 green Camalots are nice here, plus a good hip jam to keep you from popping off), but my partner with larger hands found the lower green/red Camalot section more challenging.
If you have information on the route name and/or first ascentionists, please contribute, and I'll happily update (admins, please feel free to update as well). Thanks to those who installed the nice rap anchors.
