Right-slanting crack line just left of the center dihedral/gully. Blech!

Comments: It's refreshing to see newbies complain of bolts instead of wanting them everywhere.

Thank you!

Next time, look more closely at the book/MP and you'll find plenty of gear routes up there.

Comments: Solid for the grade compared to many new 5.7's. Worth doing. EZ walk off.

Comments: Harder than Becky's?! Nah.

It's really not bad although one certainly has to be careful.

Remember folks, climbing is dangerous. And skeery.


Although I have to admit, I don't miss the "slippery layback" approach that used to be in the area. That was far worse than this.

Comments: Tony said: "The 2012 and 2014 guidebooks have a clear color photograph of Barking Spiders that shows where the fixed protection is on it."

Good point. I should have said "reputable" guides. My bad. Thanks.

Comments: Sorry it didn't jive with you Garret, maybe this isn't a 5.8 route for a 5.8 leader. I never once thought about bashing my ankles up on that ledge, but the move off of it is 1 of the cruxes of the route for sure. Guess I'm just used to LCC/trad style and this therefore didn't seem overly risky to me.

Wow that sounded pompous. Didn't mean to imply you're only a 5.8 leader, just being honest about what people should expect I suppose. Thanks for the feedback.

Comments: Wrong. Using a POWER DRILL is verboten. One can use a bolt gun, since you can hunt with guns in wilderness.

Comments: Yes, yes it is.

Who else would obscure the condition of the link by hiding it with water-loving webbing?

These need to go the way of the washer stack anchors.

I suggest people cut the webbing off when they run into such.
