Arm lock on a sport climb!


Cheers is a fun corner climb on the left end of Spiney Ridge. Climb the obvious corner left of Tractatus. There are a few loose rocks in places, but the stemming should keep you too busy to notice.


6 bolts to anchors.

Ok route with some jams up top.

This was a good line. The top has some lose rock (scary flake climbing out of the corner) and the anchors were in a strange place. It is worth doing if you're in the area.

I pulled a pineapple-sized block out of the crack near the top. There's a couple more loose ones in there.

The flake Luke talks about is several hundred pounds located at the top of the climb in the crack to the right. It is loose and only attached (??) at the back of the flake.

It's the flake above the woman's arm in the photo with "arm bar."

There is considerable chalk on the flake, so people have pulled on it...I didn't want to even touch it, and I'm used to climbing in the Tetons where there is considerable loose rock.

Instead of grabbing the flake, the crack to the left offers absolutely bomber hand jams, and there are good footholds without resorting to the flake.

Be careful out there!

Super fun! No loose blocks that I found. Get on her!
