Octopus is route #15b (unknown? 140') in the new Indian Creek Guide, but its way taller than 140'. It starts by squeezing up a fun chimney with ample face holds that can be protected by a #6 Camalot and a slung chockstone. Once above the chockstone a #1 Camalot crack can be found inside the chimney which is the same splitter crack that leads to the anchors. Thin hands and some wide fingers will get you to a nice rest ledge at the bottom of the crux. Plug in a couple finger size pieces and layback up a steep left angling flake with a hard topout. Finish with a nice overhanging hand crack to the anchors.
About 100 yards right of Neutron Dance. Look for a right facing corner with a chimney and a wavy splitter hand crack above that goes forever!
1 #6 Camalot, 3 or 4 each .5 through #2 Camalot. 1 or 2 #3 Friends for the top are nice. Two ropes are needed to rap back down. Anchor is bolts with webbing.
