Spiders from Mars (5.10b) with the White Mountains...

Description 

Fun, easy climbing up plates and jugs lead to a roof (crux) which is powered over on good holds to reach anchors a bit higher. Good moves and great scenery make this an area classic, but minus one star for the poor bolting just before the crux.

The fixed bashie mentioned in the guide is gone (but not needed), and while the route is fairly well-protected the bolting on this is a little odd - a fall just below the roof would not be a good idea.

Location 

This is the right-most route on the wall and lies just to the right of Rebel Rebel, a shorter bolted face.

Protection 

9 bolts, bolted anchors

Bolting on this route is just fine, you wouldn't want to stop and clip from the crux, and it's only like 5 ft. between the clips.
