Comments: PLEASE NOTE: a very nice looking rattlesnake has made its home about 10' left of the belay. This spot is right on the fall line. We found him when a guy was rappelling and landed within a foot of the snake. Thankfully he didn't strike.

SO... take some good pictures from a safe distance, stay below/right of the first bolt, and make sure to rap back to the belay location and NOT straight down the fall line.

Have fun!

Comments: We couldn't find any bolt counts listed here, so ended up carrying twice what we needed. Here's an updated bolt count (4/30/12):

P1: 6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
P2: 8 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.
P3: 3 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor (+ 1 piton - we skipped it)*.
P4: 5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor (+ 1 hanger-less bolt - we skipped it).
P5: 5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor (+ 1 hanger-less bolt - we used a nut).
P6: 4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor (plus 1 bolt above the anchor for top-out).

  • P3 was weird for us. Pe...

Comments: Would a Petzl Fixe pulley be appropriate for the steel tyrol? I believe the wheel is aluminum, but the pulley should minimize scraping across the cable.

Comments: Great new route! Very funny, and better (imho) than Wild Bore.

Comments: A note for first-timers (from a one-timer, so take that for what it's worth): if you think you've gone about as far as you should and are about to build a trad anchor, climb 20 more feet. This happened to us twice, and we found bolts and (better) ledges just above us. We got tricked by all the bolt-chopping talk into thinking that the belay anchors we were shooting for no longer existed.

We pulled up just short of the top of P1. The picture here (with the bolt and the lost arrow piton) is go... more >>

Comments: I notice that there are no comments earlier than March. Is Creekside climbable in January and February? New to the Creek, so I'm not quite sure about weather this time of year.

Comments: Just curious, what's the large crack to the right of the climber? This crag's routes aren't organizes L-to-R, so I couldn't look it up on MP.

Thanks!
