This may be a new route. It follows the lower arete on Spike Rock on the right side of the overhanging face. The lower you start the more difficult it is. Right hand starts on the right face, micro sidepull, left on regular starting hold. Right hand stays on the right side of the arete, left hand on the left (overhang) side. Many variations, harder and easier.

May be harder than V-4?
Crash pad below the tree, but the slab below slopes steeply so it's hard to spot and the pad won't stay in place so it doesn't do much good.

This is the second best route on the block (next to Cocaine Corner), but I can't see it being V4. It is easier than its neighbor, (Spike Mantle) which is rated V2. Cool problem, good video.

A good problem. I start both hands on the jug under, and pop out to the arete. Further, after setting the hook, you can go all the way to the top. I haven't seen to top out to the right before. Sweet!
