Extra yellow TCUs and 0.5 Camelots. Contrary to the guidebook, you do need a few small TCUs

Description:

Another classic unnamed Indian Creek splitter. Starts a minute or two walk right of where the approach trail hits the prow of the Reservoir Wall. Be looking for a striking fingercrack just right of an arete. Great locks and cool pods in the crack for toejams. Bizarre finish. Highly recommended. Deserves a name.

4 out of 5 stars very good

Beware of the gear beta in bloom's guidebook. It belongs to some other climb.

Ditto on the Blue Metolius. big fingers to arete rest to perfect fingers (Yellow Metolius for me) without feet. Highly recommended.

I believed the guide and took nothing smaller than yellow TCUs. Bad move! There is a short cruxy section about 30 feet up that requires purple and blue TCUs. Once I acquired the correct rack the climb went smoothly. Wonderful fingerjamming with a weird finish.
