Supercrack Buttress is probably the most popular/crowded area at Indian Creek. Some of the most famous cracks in the desert are here - Supercrack, Incredible Handcrack, Coyne Crack, etc. Expect stellar climbing with good protection and a casual approach, but don't expect solitude.
From the main parking area about 4 miles past Newspaper Rock, Supercrack Buttress will be obvious. Follow a well worn trail to the base, and look for the crowds to mark the start of most routes.
