This is the third route from the right side of Irok. The route features a low angle face giving way to ever steeper climbing. The rock is generally good; however, as with all Clear Creek routes, it's a good idea to belay from a protected area. This route serves as a good warm up for the crag.


10 quickdraws + anchors.

M1A1 was a kick. Climbing is on some major (!!!) jugs and needs just a bit of commitment. The roof above was initially perplexing and could generate some bad rep for its shaky rock quality. However, if you simply punch straight up - rather than taking the traverse that seems obvious - then you avoid all of the dubious rock that you might otherwise have stood on. At the top, take a shake, lock and load. While it gets pumpy at the end, you won't find these jugs anywhere else in Clear Creek.
