The crux on this one is halfway up, but small edges and pockets save you after the crux.
This is the first route on Spiney Ridge.
6 bolts, two bolt anchor.

This climb, like so many others on Spiney, is awesome! Powerful moves down low lead to a good stance below the crux. Small crimps and very thin feet get you past the business and the climbing backs off above.

Great route you can go out left at the crux around the 4th bolt and get a jug and rest better. However, this hold could fall off.

Pretty good route! The crux definitely at the 4th bolt.... I've seen people head out left to the arete and then cut across (which definitely cheats the crux of the climb) but is possible! If you wish to stay direct, crimp and smear your way up (on minimal) feet to good good matching crimp and finish with easier climbing!
