Will Stanhope on the FA Andrew Burr Photo

Description 

A stunning route with wild feature slapping, committing face climbing and very thin gear. This route defines "new-school" Indian Creek climbing.

Difficult and scary feature climbing on the flare leads to the crux.
The crux is a burly traverse from the flare into Ruby's Cafe. The boulder problem is something like V7/8 with a nasty fall. Finish up on Ruby's.

Proud FA by Canadian hard-man, Will Stanhope.


Location 

Just right of Ruby's Cafe up the obvious flaring corner.

Protection 

Lots of thin stuff. The crux boulder problem is protected by two blades.
