Carina Eady-Toledo sending Spinal Tap


A reachy start on big holds leads to a tricky crux between the second and third bolts. Above the third bolt, the route follows an easier (but very fun) arĂȘte past two more bolts to the anchors. Cool and thoughtful moves up excellent rock.


Pass under the large roof at the right end of Nose Rock. There are two bolt lines with shared anchors that go just left of the roof (Strong Girl and Sex Is Violence). Walk past these and Spinal Tap is the next line of bolts on the right.


5 bolts to shuts. First bolt can be clipped from the ground. Please use quickdraws when toproping to reduce wear on the anchors.
