Canadian Sending Spree at Indian Creek

Canadian crack-master Jean-Pierre “Peewee” Ouellet drove more than 2,000 miles to Utah from his home in Québec for a two-week vacation, and he still had enough time to bag Indian Creek’s hardest routes. During his short visit, Ouellet made the third ascent of Learning to Fly (5.13+) and the fourth ascent of From Switzerland With Love (5.13+), as well as Death of a Cowboy (5.13a) and a possible first free ascent of Fairy Tales (5.13b).

“It was a really good trip climbing-wise, but the highlight of the trip was shooting cans with a revolver in the desert, a first for me,” Ouellet said in an email. “We don’t do that much in Canada.”

Last summer, Ouellet made the second free ascent of Fiddler on the Roof, a 5.13d roof crack at Fremont Canyon, Wyoming.
