Indian Creek Rock Climbing
Indian Creek is widely considered to be the best crack climbing area IN THE WORLD! We have been climbing and guiding there far longer, and far stronger, than any other guide service in the area. Thousands of cracks soar up the steep sandstone walls that rise above the beautiful valley of Indian Creek. This is a magical and unique place to climb. Because of their sustained parallel nature, some cracks can use as many as 10 camming devices of the same size. Your guide will be fully equipped with such a rack, and with a full tank of psych, can take you to the many sought after classics! For climbers operating in the 5.9 and higher grades, "The Creek" is THE place to learn to crack climb.
Full day classes only. See the Splitter Camp page for additional offerings.
