Kill the Spore (5.11b), Williamson Rock
Williamson Rock is currently closed to climbing. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Although 5.11b/c is the official guidebook rating, the difficulty is highly dependent on the climber's height. I've heard 6-foot-tall climbers call the route 5.9. It all depends on what footholds you have to use to reach the crux crimp: the shorter you are, the worse the footholds (and the better your technique must be).


Location 

This is the route to the immediate right of Mushroom (5.8) (2 routes to the right of "Shroomin'').


Protection 

Bolts.

I hate this route (but I'm short) because when you come whipping off you always seem to land above the ledge below just barely clean.
