Top Sirloin, 5.11
  • Top Sirloin- 5.11/130’
  • No question, Top Sirloin is the number one classic of this wall and a must do for 1” hand jammers. It is a slightly overhanging 1” sustained crack. For some of us, it is a bit small making it feel like a hard 5.11. Ten 1” pieces would get you warm and fuzzy on lead and no need for any other gear size really. You could still bring more 1" pieces if you had them though, 130' sustained. This pitch is sustained the whole way with a rest at a flake about 5m or so from the top. One of the most shaded routes at Indian Creek. Stays shaded all day in October. Turn left at the end of the approach trail and walk about 5 minutes or less looking for a large left facing corner. Route marked with sandstone engraving at base. FA Steve Hong. Dow (photo)
