Kat cruising on no beggin'


Not a hard climb. Much easier than most simimlarly rated climbs and does not require much crack-climbing skill. A great warm up...
...in hiking boots.
This mostly right-facing corner/crack/flake takes mixed gear from mostly good stances. The unusual thing about this climb, for indian creek, is the number of footholds on it available as rests.
Climb up some so-so pillars and then up and right, then back left on the crack to some fixed anchors.
To descend, rap to the ground.


Just left of where the trail meets the rock from the end of the dirt road. Hike left past the flakey route "Walkin' Talkin' Bob" and continue a few hundred feet further left (West) to reach this route.


A double set of cams should be fine for most leaders. newbies might want more so as to sew it up.

The unnamed 5.10 flake just right of this one is worth doing. Starts on a pillar into a finger crack with a L-facing hands flake to its right; pro is fingers and hands stuff with not much in between ;). A meager plaque reading '5.10' resides at the base.

Wow, I wrote that comment 4 years ago and now have zero recollection of the route in question. My new assessment: unmemorable.

This is a great beginner creek lead with a lot of rests. I found the crux to be right at the start. Make sure you bring a few slings to minimize rope drag.
