The route had previously been attempted by Nick Martino, who can be seen coming very close to a successful ascent in the below video.

Hayden Kennedy took a few days to work the moves on the route before making a successful redpoint. It is thought the route weighs in at 5.14- or around F8b+ and has called the route Carbondale Short Bus.

Indian Creek is a popular and well known sandstone crack climbing area in Southeast Utah, USA.
