The Wild Things (Chrissy & Pappy) chillin' at camp Saturday morning. We arrived at Indian Creek mid-day Wed and while skies were blue, temp's quite cool!
This wall is called Critic's Choice and just across from our camp at Cottonwoods.
Hum! Seems benign for a perfect Indian Creek first lead...
Chip ready at belay and Mark chalking up for Bunny Slope, 5.9+, 140 feet of right foot bustin' fun.
Dean is camera ready
Bunny Slope has three distinct sections; a short first, a slightly arcing steep thin crack to a ledge and then a long right corner of #2 gold cams.
Mark scrunched in the thin crack.
Mark on the thin crack.

The pain is exquisite!
Please! Please! Just a moment's rest! Thank you! Thank you!
This is me. Cool as Honnold. Too bad Mark and Dean didn't feel the same way. Don't pitch on that ledge! Sheesh -
A most attentive Dean.
Oh yeah --
Up with one piece to spare. Phew! No back cleaning!

Bunny Slope looks different from a distance on descent. Awesome day. Great trip. Thanks guys and gal!
