Super fun and absolutely a classic! Yes this is not what you expect at the creek but the total opposite. Three pitches of exciting friction. Not very hard but R rated. Pitch one follows easy seam and then you must build your own stopper anchor, but at a good stance. Second pitch has some fun exposure down the right side, leads to pretty good anchor (but bring extra webbing in case), the last pitch wanders left up some crazy and sandy rock. A few old bolts and very runout. Rap to top of P2 and then down the gully to the right.
Perfect alternative for a crack rest day and you will not see a soul.
