climbing Extra Lean

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 MORE INFO >>>


This is the obvious, chalked up off-finger splitter just right of top sirloin. Climb the splitter to a ledge (orange tcu). Continue up the narrowing crack using a bizarre horizontal lieback technique to another small ledge (yellow and blue tcu). Some corner changing and occasional face holds get you to the anchor (purple tcu, black alien).


Just left of top sirloin


Cams from orange tcu down to gray tcu, 2 – 3 of each size.

To clarify, this route is to the right of top sirloin. It consists of a series of three splitter finger cracks, all varying in size.

This route is abnormaly sporty for IC. The route is characterized by delicate moves on tight fingers linked by face holds. An exellent line...

In my opinion, one of the most beautiful and pure fun routes around. Not typical plug-and-chug jamming or laybacking, but the finger locks are just stellar and there are a few spicy face moves to mix it up

Easily one of the most fun 12s I've been on at the Creek. Definitely not your pure Creek style splitter, though.

Bouldery moves. I think I heel hooked three times! Super fun though and full of rests!
