| eventually it just clicks. and once it does, that’s when the real fun begins.
this was ryan’s (@realcanadiandirtbag
) first trip to the creek and he straight up crushed! after going through the mandatory first week of ‘creek-humbling’, he continued to remain stoked and eager, and the jams began feeling better and better. here he is sending the classic overhanging varied splitter annunaki 5.12-, one of most unique routes i’ve seen!
so if you ever make it down to indian creek, head down to the supercrack buttress on a saturday and wander the base. echoing off the red walls you will hear the precious sound of the creek doing what it does best...humbling. phrases like, “this is definitely harder than 5.10”
or the ever-classic, “it’s just not my size!” and a personal favourite of mine, “f$#k
ringlocks!!” will be sure to ring in your ears. and if you’re not careful, you may catch yourself saying something similar yourself, while you’re up there all sorts of gripped, worming your way up a 10-. but that’s alright, we’ve all been there!
this place wouldn’t be the same without it.
until next time, ✌️ | annunaki, optimator wall. |
