Location: UT : Moab Area : Indian Creek : Sparks Wall : Low Spark (5.11 PG13)

Comments: The first pitch of this climb was awesome! Definitely don't follow the book's recommendation on pieces. I took 1 (0.5), 4 (0.75s), 3 (1s), 3 (2s), 2 (3s), and 1 (4). The only piece I didn't use was the 4. I thought the bulge and the tight section about 20 ft below the bulge were the hardest parts.

I didn't place anything in the upper flake section because it was rather suspect. I felt better just getting to the top as fast as possible.

Comments: I am assuming this climb is the same as what was added as jump start. The description in the book doesn't seem quite right, but there is no other climb in the area that matches that description. This was one of my favorite climbs I've done at the Creek. It has some really fun moves at the bottom, some good rests and a fun ring lock or lay back sprint to the anchors.

Comments: Bloom says the right crack is 11-, but I definitely thought it as hard or harder than Way Rambo and Annunaki. 11+ for sure. Both climbs are awesome.

Comments: Awesome climb! Perfect for building confidence on sustained terrain.

There is a beautiful looking long corner to splitter between here and Ed's World. I couldn't tell if there were anchors at the top. Has anyone climbed up there?

Comments: Roof is fun! Wide section is brutal, especially if you don't layback it. It's too wide for #4s at the crux.

Comments: if you don't use the chimney, .10+ might be accurate.

Comments: Great climb! I thought is was easier than Fire Roasted Starfish, but my fingers are on the small size.

Comments: It is confirmed that the pro in the bottom section is a bit sketch. Black alien popped out as Philly, the belayer, was lowering himself down off the boulder -- he almost took Ritchie with him as he fell. Luckily no one got hurt. Ritchie, knowing he couldn't fall safely, proceeded to send the route. Good work buddy.

Comments: After doing this and Blood Sausage on top rope, I have to say that this one seemed much harder for my smaller hands.

Comments: I don't recommend doing this in the winter unless you enjoy needless suffering. After 4 hours of skinning and endless postholing, we finally got to the base and put on our rock shoes for a few short pitches. I didn't think the rock was nearly as sketchy as I had been led to believe. The view from the top, however, was quite something.

Comments: Fun route, but I probably won't do it again. The chimney was quite a challenge to get into and helped to solidify my opinion of chimneys being heinous and obnoxious more than fun. The traverse on the 3rd pitch I thought was 10+ or I'm just getting weak over the winter. The 4th pitch was the funnest with a heady runout at the end. I definitely couldn't finish the boulder problem at the top either. If it weren't easy to aid up with the bolt right there, that single move would make this climb ... more >>

Comments: We didn't see any one "prominent" line when we headed up to the base. I think we could have taken at least 3 or 4 different routes to the notch. After some deliberation we decided on one that seemed to have a few pin scars and seemed like the most promising. If we had more #3 nuts, it seems the route we chose would have been much more secure. As it was, I think A3 is about right. It also seemed to me that it could definitely be free climbed by someone a bit more skilled than myself. ... more >>

Comments: This route is definitely a little sandbagged, and that's not just because it stole my gold link cam. Awkward thin hands throughout, that is when it's not ring locks or offwidth. Bloom's suggestions are a little off for protection. In camalot sizes, I'd suggest 1-2 .5s, 3-5 .75s, 6-8 1s, 2-3 2s, 1-2 3s, 1-2 3.5s or 4s.

Comments: I'm pretty sure this route is the first pitch of the Crowning, and although it's fun and shady climb. It's soft, even for a 5.9

Comments: Make sure to get up and climbing early, 'cause the walk around from the South side is a long one!
