Description 

A really nice newer addition to the Tower, and a great warmup (especially for routes on the Bowling Ball Wall). Mostly steep, big moves on equally big holds with a couple of cruxy sections, one bolt protected and the other on gear. A couple of different options exist at the roof up high- figure it out!


Location 

Furthest right route on the Bowling Ball Wall (S. Face of the Tower).


Protection 

Single set of camalots from .3-#1 and a few med. stoppers, plus lots of draws. There are bolts w/ rap rings on top.

This route is called Spare Tire. The original FA was done by Jim Scott entirely on gear, then Meg and Rand re-cleaned it and added a few bolts (with permission).
