/ Indian Creek - Finding climbing partners
Has anyone been to Indian Creek?? is it easy to find climbing partners out there? any tips?? Heading out there at the end of the month!
Thanks for your help Matt!
Hopefully will find a few partners, Ive got a full month out there, end of Sept to end of October, so fingers crossed it should have cooled down a bit.
Try posting for a partner on MountainProject.com. Half of Colorado goes
out to IC in October, so you should have no problem lining someone up.
Plenty of route info on that site too.
I went to the Creek on my own. I met loads of great people both at the crag and camping area, and had no problems finding people to climb with. Before going, I spent quite a bit of time on the Internet trying to find people in facebook groups etc. Unless you have a US cell phone it's hard to arrange. For me this was totally unnecessary as it was so easy to do when I was there.
Cheers Tony! Can you recommend a good campsite site for meeting partners/good view and close to the climbing??
I spent loads of time out there on my own this spring. It was very chilled out and I never had any problem finding people to climb with.
Wandering around the vareous camping spots chatting to people seemed to work. There is a notice board by the pit toilet at the end of the Bridger Jack camping road and people seemed to meet up there in the morning. Failing that wandering along the base of supercrack buttress always yeilded results. Normaly people I knew, but did not know were in the states.
Whilst your there you should check out some towers also....

Thanks for your help guys
I was there for a few days and lucked out finding some wandering American with no friends but loads of Camalots. As the man above says, you need such huge racks that people tend to team up anyway to a degree.
Absolutely amazing place. Have fun.
