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.

At the far left end of Supercrack Buttress, there is a tall and large left-facing crack system that starts thin and gets bigger as it rises to its 120' length.

(EDIT:) But this will not pull, I am told....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
