Comments: Agreed they were great routes.
BD: Just go off route a bit if you want to find the glorious choss you seek.

Comments: I had no issues on it except for kicking down some pebbles when I led the 4th pitch. The belays seemed sheltered ass swell.

And as reference, I did the route years ago that got removed and I remember constantly dodging baseballs from above.

Comments: "Be warned: there's a huge, loose block... stay alert & be sure your belayer's got a helmet on!"

Think a helmet will do all that much to save you from a HUGE, LOOSE BLOCK?

Ha.

Comments: This route felt more like technical mountaineering than climbing. That's not a bad thing though.

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.
