Description 

Ho hum. Guidebook gives it 5.9, but it felt more like 5.7 to my partner and I. Worth doing once if in the neighborhood, but I won't be back. As a "5.7 handcrack", this is an excellent climb. As a "5.9 handcrack", it was a bit of a let down.

A long, right trending handcrack. Lots of face holds keep the difficulty in check.

Rap anchors are located to the North and are difficult to spot. They are on top of "This Spuds For You". Locate them before starting up the route as you can see them from the ground. A 70m rope JUST makes the ground.


Location 

Located on the Upper Creekside as can be easily identified as a long, right trending handcrack just right of two parallel cracks.


Protection 

Standard rack to #3 camalot.

A fun crack just slightly harder than double cracks left of it. With a 60m you could rap spuds to behind the flake and chimney your way out - if you like that kind of thing!

I agree that this one is 5.7.
