Located on the SW facing wall of the main feature (Beautiful Crag) : Doctor Creek. Approximate start co-ordinates: 50.01307, -116.16472

P1 : Interesting slab & mantles, 5.9 but a bit run-out where it is easy. Use a ¾” cam in a slot above the first bolt

P2 : Go right up easy blocks onto the nice bolted 5.8 slab above, follow to a station below a corner.

P3 : clip a bolt to the right of a corner & fly up. A thoughtful slab above, move left below a steep wall, 10c crux up a steep short step to horizontal cracks, 1-1/2" cam & a bolt & mantle to the ledge

P4 : Left up immaculate slab 5.8 super-fun!

P5 : Right up the face & corner, don't hesitate on the 10c corner or you're toast. Top-out left at a station on a ledge The route is mostly bolted, but take a few cams (3/4" & 1-1/2") & some small/medium nuts for added protection.

Plan on starting the climb about 2:00 pm, the route is in the shade before then, but is sun-bathed in the afternoon and into the evening.

Decent by rappelling the route with a single 60m rope. All stations have rings.
