2nd Meat Wall is no doubt one of the better shaded walls at Indian Creek. Facing northwest, even in late afternoon, many of its classic corner routes (i.e. Top Sirloin, 5.11 and Tofu Crack, 5.10) are well shaded. The buttress is shaped sort of like a protruding island with some pure north facing routes to the left. Therefore, routes to the right get morning sun. In October, it made sense to move from right to left. The view from this “island of cracks” is perhaps one of the finest at Indian Creek facing the setting sun with both Six Shooters in the foreground. Most of the routes (at least 32 as of 2010) are typical Indian Creek long single pitch 5.10 and 5.11 sustained cracks peppered with a few 5.12’s as well as at least one 5.13 and one 5.9.
