Description 

This problem is a sit start on the overhanging west face of Spike Rock next to the tree. A solid pull from the start leads to good holds and a fun mantle. Short but enjoyable. Crux is actually first move. Mantle can be done by throwing a leg up right or left, but left is probably easier. This problem would get more stars if it were any longer, but it's like 4 moves. Hopefully the flakes under the lip will hold out, as they are a little flexy. Once again on the name...couldn't remember if there was a designated name for this thing, so feel free to pipe in.

Protection 

Nada.

Very short. Maybe three moves.

Short but sweet! Not often I get to mantle like this. There is a picture on page 34 of "Rock Climbing: Mastering Basic Skills" by Craig Luebben. The guy in the picture sequence sticks his right elbow straight in the air, leverages, matches his other hand and tops out by bringing up his foot. Awesome. I did it facing completely the opposite way. I am going to bring the book with me and see if I can copy his way.
