Indian Creek

Montana can dish out some long winters and this season was no exception. The only remedy for these brutal winters is to grab some rock gear, flip-flops, and fill the gas tank to full.
A rather large group of us headed down to southern Utah to enjoy 9 days of sunny bliss; no ice screws, no cell service, and miles of dazzling red cliffs split every meter by the most perfect cracks on Earth. Here are some pictures of the trip.

Cheers, Loren

  1. I'm insanely jealous that you got to climb there. Judging from the 9th photo it looks like you were around Glen Canyon (I can see the Cheesebox on the horizon). I did some canyoneering but I never encountered any good climbs while hiking.
