Another old post, but Millcreek is always worth the wait. Shaft, the CB-GBers and I cruised down to Millcreek canyon for a weekend trip. Millcreek is by far my favorite canyon because it is stunningly beautiful with its striped red and black walls and extremely peaceful as it sees only a handful of climbers. Besides the beauty of the canyon, the climbing is superb and unpredictable.
Me leading one of the warm-ups on the Barrel Rock.
The Moab local climbing Frigid Air. The Moab local is mainly a traditional climber and later in the day put up a fantastic trad line in the Horse Creek area.
Shaft, the Slab Master, easily cruising a slab that I would never have been willing to lead.
This really cool arete was next to the slab. It was out of our limits, but since it shared anchors with the slab we threw a top rope on it. It was a superb climb on extremely thin holds.
Millcreek was quite busy on Saturday, but upon arriving on Sunday morn we were the only climbers in the canyon. We warmed up on a couple climbs across the log in the Wicked Crag area and then headed down to Horse Creek to run SlabDunk and tricky overhanging “5.10″ that I am pretty sure had a 5.12 start.
Me crossing the log by the Wicked Crag with the CB-GBers tucked safely in my hoody.
After yet another great day of climbing, Rob and I jammed out on the way back to the good ol’ SLC. Good times… good times!
