This route takes the prominent line out the hanging arete via multiple seams and slopers. Start by preclipping the first two bolts, as the start is very awkward stepping off the ledge and onto the route. The crux hits right of the deck with a very difficult cross through on small holds which leads to a foot cutting throw to the big, obvious chalked jug. From here on out, it's stamina and accuracy that will determine success. Mid route at the fifth bolt, it is advisable to have a long draw to clip, because the clipping holds there are not great. Technical, powerful, sloping, and continuous, this route is a must do at the grade.
This route takes the line straight out the hanging arete on the left side of the Spray Wall proper. Left of Rapture.
8 bolts to cold shuts.

This was the first of the steep routes at the Spray wall. I did the FA with Dan Durland pulling in the next run.
