Cougar Creek 5 Years ago  
Climbed "Gong Show" or "Explodamatic" up Cougar Creek. It was in very good shape and is a really nice climb. There was a single pair of really old tracks that went up the right drainage, but no signs of climbers once there. Fun to climb something with not a single pick hole in it. It is a very dry climb, so the name "Explodamatic" is apt. It is in a narrow canyon, so also makes some pretty neat "gong" sounds. The grade is 3-4, a full 30 m and a really nice, flat base to hang-out on.

The route description is slightly off. It takes a solid 2 hours to get there (not 45 minutes). Go to Canadian Forks (45 minutes) and take a right. After 5 minutes, take another right up an obvious creek and head up past 2 sport walls on the right covered in projects to a hanging dagger on the right(1 hour). Crampon up and head up the canyon another 15 minutes. Climb will not be visible until 1 minute from the base. Once went further up the canyon, but couldn't find anymore ice.
