[The transition between yellow and blue camalots on the infamous "Supercrack of the Desert", 1 kb]27m. Supercrack Buttress #25 2004 guide A truly striking line, and a fantastic climb to boot. This route was originally named "Luxury Liner" as the plaque states, and continued up to the rim in three pitches. Now most people climb the first pitch, nick-named "Supercrack" or "Supercrack of the Desert". There is a second set of anchors approximately 50 meter up.

Climb of my life! No question. Rocked up to Indian Creek, met 'Dan' (man with many cams) and stomped it out onsight without warm-up. Couldn't free anything else all day, too messed up mentally & pysically

Unfortunately we only had 4 maybe 5 bits of gear (a 2.5 Friend+ large wire in first 20ft then Friend 3's only) that would fit the pitch. All 4 of us did the route, the last person clean...with the rest calling him to put gear in(v. spaced) at suitably placed intervals. If one piece ripped, he'd have hit the ground. Awesome pitch.
