Comments: Fun area good climbing but the person who bolted these climbs didn't seem to put much thought into where the bolts were placed. I think he/she rapped down and just slammed them in every 8 or so feet without thinking of clipping stances or how the route should be climbed. Thanks for developing this area nonetheless.

Comments: If you have a wrench it would be a good idea to tighten the bolts on this anchor. They are both loose. If you have a wrench and a hammer tighten em up the hit the threads to keep the nut from coming loose. There is not much room on the bolt to tighten the nuts tho.

Comments: Great route, the #1 above the roof messes with getting a jam, I laid it back because the cam took up the jam, but you can move through with good protection below the roof. Must do

Comments: good warm up for those with big hands wishing to get into the 11s at the creek, in my mind its an 11 for gorilla mits, man those feet are tricky to trust, the hands are okay, but one helluvah route, never climbed in a cave before, so i give it 4 stars for its uniqueness

Comments: Hi, I got busted on the 211, the road going into Indian Creek Corridor. I was speeding and got searched. Dont speed and just say no to search. Be careful on these Utah backroads, spred the word.
