Hot Sex (5.9) is a splitter hand crack located in Indian Creek, Utah. This route is slightly lower angle and thus is great for someone honing their crack skills or warming up for the day. It is also shorter than most creek routes. Therefore, you don’t need a ton of cams to climb it.

It is located on the Nuclear Wall and has a few other neighboring moderates such as Manifesto (5.10) and Nuclear Fingers (5.11-). I climbed this route at the start of my last creek trip and it was a great confidence builder to jumpstart the trip.
