Indian Creek

We spent one and a half days at the creek. It's just like I imagined: sustained crack climbing, long routes (we got by with a single 70) no feet, corners, splitters, and quality sandstone. Bring a lot of gear or share with fellow climbers. I can't wait to go back. For food and water you need to go to Moab which is an hour drive from the Creek. There were bathrooms at the trailheads and the camp site. For more info about climbing in the area check Friends of Indian creek:

We climbed in two areas. Max put up TRs and I enjoyed the painful, but fun jamming. First night we ticked off the classics at Super crack buttress:

The Supercrack! Splitter!

Supercrack (5.10)
Incredible hand crack (5.10)
3AM (5.10)
No name (5.9?)

Next day we headed to the Cat wall. We climbed eight routes:

Fat cat (5.11-)
Unnamed corner crack (5.10)
Pit bull terror (5.11)
Johnny Cat (5.11+)
Cat Burglar (5.12)
Puma (5.11)
More than one way (5.10)
Kool cat (5.11)

Study time. Tomorrow Moonlight buttress!
