Spiderman buttress is home to many classic moderate climbs. As one of the most popular "backside" areas there is often a wait for the most popular routes here (spiderman). Climbs here have a spectacular backdrop of cascade peaks.

Getting There 

Head down the main trail, cross the river, and go past the dihedrals and main area. Take the trail up to asterik pass and scramble over the top. Head right (north) along climber's trails and follow signs to the west facing buttress.

There is a small raptor nest (with eggs) about 15 feet from the top of the first pitch of the main Spiderman Crack several feet in. The route should probably be closed for the spring season. I know this is a big loss. Anyone that can pass this along would be appreciated.
