Another classic! This one was my favorite 10d for many years... and then I did Breakfast Borrito and Fire and Brimstone over at Drive By. Now it's my second favorite 10d.

Definitely a classic! I love this climb and I love the approach. Can't beat parking and climbing at Phantasia!

I sent this on gear today 6/15/05! I understand the need for the first three bolts but the top half protects just fine. Should be Mixed route!!!!!
Stewy911 said on August 10th, 2005
Nope. Either trad or Sport, take your choice

It used to have a fixed nut.

I remember when Gaar brought back footage of him climbing it on gear and he was so psyched, but then in the footage all you can see was him clipping bolts, then saying "wait, wait, it's coming, shut up, I place gear in a second". Haha, it was great. I must admit he did place gear for the top half, and even jumped from the anchors to prove the gear was solid. I'm just teasing you Gaar, it was a solid ascent.
Gaar said on February 21st, 2006
I love you Jason! Your my hero!! And i was later able to prove you can protect the start with nuts, I just wouldnt fall on them!

A Red clasic. Took my longest whip to date on this route.

This climb was fun and pumpy. I did it after a full day of trad climbing at fortress so that might have had something to do with the pump but it's just a 5.10 and sure felt hard at the end of the day.

good route pumpy if your at your limit

A real classic. The sit down rest is also a nice find.

Such a fun route. The crack system up top makes this route.

As of 9/21/09, quickdraws have been hung on this climb in loving memory of the late Dr. Karl "Hungus" Stockhausen. This was his favorite climb in the Red, and seemed to be a fitting tribute to those closest to him. PLEASE, do not remove the draws
milspecmark said on May 8th, 2012
I took a fall while clipping the anchors and hit the ledge below the last bolt. Just keep it in mind and maybe push off if you fall on your way up from the last bolt to the anchors. I was pretty pumped by then.

The "first" bolt is missing from it's spot about eye level when you're on the ledge. Looks like it's been that way for a while. If you're scared of an over-the-ledge fall, you can protect the start with some nut placements.

11a due to first 2-3 bolts of climbing
climb2core said on October 21st, 2018
100 people say otherwise
Anonymous said on October 22nd, 2018
Pretty stout for the grade. I also would go with 11a. Harder than whipstocking
Anonymous said on October 22nd, 2018
Yeah but Whipstocking is 10b/c tho (and I'm not a sandbagger). Creep Show is fine at 10d - on par with other hard d's (Girls Gone Wild Woo!, Super Pinch, KSB, Fire and Brimstone, etc.). And yeah, I said hard d. Fight me.

Yeah pretty funny, people are now so accustomed to the ridiculously over-fluffed grades in the Red that they complain about the routes that are actually close to being graded accurately haha

but wait...122 people disagree with whipstocking being a 10c
