Lee Terveen goes Around The Horn!

Description 

If you love long, technical routes with varied terrain, powerful moves and beautiful veiw from the nosebleed section of the upper deck, do not miss this one!

As far as we can tell, this is the only two pitch route in Spearfish Canyon (baseball pun intended!)

The first pitch has you hurling yourself over powerful moves on overhung, blonde rock and is believed to go at 5.11c. Get ready to crimp and beg for the next jug!

The second pitch gets you onto a bold, black slab that leads to one hard-ass pinchy move and onto an arete with five ten plushish jug-hauling to one of the most coveted positions in the Spearfish Canyon vista.

A MUST DO! YOU WILL NOT WANT TO MISS THIS ONE!

Location 

This tall drink of water warms the bench in the middle of The Dugout.

Protection 

Every draw you own and then some. This climb has no perma-draws in place and open shunt anchors. A sixty meter rope will get you up and down this route safely if you tie a knot in the end, but if you own a seventy meter this would be the time to break it out.
