Description 

Get to Spermatose by following the directions in the South Canyon Wall description. The trail takes you right to the top, and just walk over to the rock protrusion to toprope it. To lead it, hike down a steep gully to the right. The climb goes up the west face past bolts.

Protection 

bolted route, fixed anchors, easy to toprope

This is a great climb on lead or toprope, wicked moves at the end where the crack and finger locks are.
