Creekside Towers for sure. April 19, 2017


The routes are located on the west side and stay in the shade until the afternoon. Moderate trad lines and fun sport routes next to a small stream.

Getting There 

Follow the trail on the west side of the Anteater and continue down to the next formation. At the junction where the trail splits to the Office stay on the main trail which takes you along the west side. First up are the slabs, then lower and finally the tower.

Start by scrambling up a short chimney to the left of the climb. It is the first climb on the exposed ledge on the left. The pumpy crux comes in the first 4 bolts through steep terrian.
