We got tricked by all the bolt-chopping talk into thinking that the belay anchors we were shooting for no longer existed.

We pulled up just short of the top of P1. The picture here (with the bolt and the lost arrow piton) is go... more >>

Comments: I notice that there are no comments earlier than March. Is Creekside climbable in January and February? New to the Creek, so I'm not quite sure about weather this time of year.

Thanks!
