Comments: This was very difficult for me, as are most laybacks at Indian Creek. I used lots of cams from 0.3 to #1 Camalot (especially 0.75), and one #2 Camalot at the top. No need for anything larger, despite what the description says.

Comments: A single 60m easily reaches the huge ledge right off the ground, but remember to put a knot in the end. I was happy to have one #3 Camalot at the top before the mantle.

Comments: I only used #0.75 and #1 Camalots. I have very fat hands and it was ring locks most of the way for me.

Comments: I have fat hands and this route was very difficult for me. I placed several 0.75 Camalots through the middle section in addition to lots of #1s. #2 Friends would have been a little more convenient but Camalots worked fine.

Comments: A fun 10a linkup would be to climb the excellent starting crack of Babble On then pull up onto the face of Boneheads before the traverse under the overhang. Bring a few cams from 2-3.5 inches for the starting crack, but the face above is well protected by bolts.

Comments: Supertopo says doubles to 4 inches, but you really don't need anything larger than a #3. I placed one #4 C4 at the 5.6 wide bit (smaller protection was available) but the old style #4 that I carried went unused.

Comments: One of the bolts is missing on the first rap. There's just one bolt with a severely bent hanger. Kinda sketchy.

Comments: We left the car at 6:30am and got stuck behind a hopelessly slow and sketchy party. We spent most of the day waiting at belays and barely finished the raps before dark, and to make matters worse the sketchy party dropped a cam and several rocks. Also, we were crowded from below by agro parties even though we were doing our best to tailgate and try to pass the slow party, who refused requests to pass.

I recommend a #0 C3 or equivalent for the 50 Crowded variation. I didn't bring one and to... more >>

Comments: Fun and well bolted, but the slab climbing gets a little repetitive. It makes a great way to start the Squamish Buttress or Ultimate Everything if there are crowds on Diedre.

A single set of cams to 2 inches is plenty. You don't need any nuts. We linked the last two pitches with a single 60m rope and had a few meters left.

Comments: This is one of my favorite routes of the grade in the Smoke Bluffs. Bring a small rack from the yellow TCU to #1 Camalot. I placed 1 #2 cam near the top.
