20m. Supercrack Buttress #10 2004 guide

This is bar "Supercrack of the Desert" the most popular 5.10-handcrack in Indian Creek, and it shows. Get here early to avoid waiting in line. This route suffer a bit from traffic, the crux has gone from tight friend #2.5 to baggy friend #2.5 in just a few years. Don't rack anything on the right side of the harness to avoid erosion on the right-hand corner.

Shame it's wearing out. Good jamming interspersed with good rest ledges.

Awesome route, having borrowed cams made it a little less stressful. 😉

Great fun on perfect yellow hands! Waited a long time for another party to finish but it was worth it, particularly after completely failing on Coyne Crack. This was possibly the most fun route I did at the Creek, the right combination of being fairly straightforward overall with just a couple of tricky pulls and the pure joy of perfect hand jams. It really lifted my spirits after Coyne Crack earlier that day and the Dentist's Chair the day before and I decided that I should stick it out at the Creek after all! Ran it out a bit with 8 yellow cams but that still left the crux well protected. Only really one or two hard pulls on the overhanging section and the rest straightforward so only felt E1 but that's because it was the perfect size for me!
