This is a pretty fun climb that i think i would like more after doing it a few times... It is a tricky onsight making it feel a little stiff...

Start up using underclings and a prominant layback crack to a good rest/clipping stance... It looks like a hold broke here i cleaned it out a bit so most of the loose stuff should be gone... Hidden hold around the arete to the right... A tricky crux section moves left to a cool big move to a good jug and cruise to the clips...

Another worth while route at this out of the way cliff...


The Main G-Spot cliff has 4 routes... this one is on the far right... Starts up a prominant layback feature...


4-5 bolts to quick clips anchors...

Coming around the block feature near the top is the reason to climb this!

A good route with varied climbing. The guidebook has got it right "may be the best route at the crag" (but Drilling in My Dreams is also good). These two routes make a hike up to the G-spot definitely worth the trip.
