Kenny, originally the route continued up a series of diagonalling cracks to the bushy ledge. The ledge is a bit rotten so I didn't place an anchor, it makes more sense the way you two did it. Thanks

No sweat Dan, I think that route will get done more often, at least I know we'll put on the circuit. all those routes climb very well.

the cracks on the lower wall are pretty easy 5.8 5.9 5.10 and the arÍte to the right of orange wedge is probably 5.12 it still needs some cleaning up high. future ascents should verify the grade I did some rehearsing of the crux when I was cleaning.

Wes, the routes on that wall are short but really fun.

I did one on that wall that had anchors a couple years ago. Not very straight forward as far as following any line or seeing pro ahead of time, but fun. Belayed off a big rock in the creek... maybe slightly up canyon from OOTD wall? Will do more this summer.

wes, the route that you climbed that leaves the creek sound like Crazy Creek, a 5.8r that faces east and follows a pink swath of clean rock. The above that anchor, hosts five climbs. They all follow left-facing corners 5.6-5.10a. Check it, you can use Crazy Creek as an approach pitch or hike around by going upstream past the bend to the right. Cross on a logthen up a bank to short wall go right thhen up and left to Never Ever Land. Have fun, Dan

I took a few friends up to Deadwood on Sat to get our offwidth and chimney on. It was windy but fairly warm. A thanks goes out to whoever extended the rap anchors at the top. Now a 70m gets you down with a few feet of rope to spare. Eventually I'll throw some long chains on to make a more permanent solution.
