Description 

Pull the initial roof with some sandy rock on good jams to wide jams but with face features. The rock is great after this. Above, a wide, #4 Camalot-sized crack is made easy with ample face features and a second crack inside the large crack. A second crack appears on the right above, offering nice jams and good stemming between the two. Finish on a final, slabby section with thin crack climbing in a corner with great face features.

This climb is reminiscent of Red Rocks, with great face features and varied climbing - not your typical Indian Creek jamfest.


Location 

Next route left of Little Sparky, which is the left-facing tips corner. This is a few minutes walk left of Sparks of the Tempest and where the trail comes up. Identified by a roof at the start to a wide crack to a thin crack in a right-facing corner on slabby terrain.


Protection 

A double set of cams from really small (blue Alien) to big, #4 Camalot.
