Andrew Wright on Spinous Process.


First crux is getting past the small roof. Stay on the spine-like arete til you mantle and move right to the opposite arete. Committing mantle gets you to the finishing jug. Easy climbing leads to the top.


In center of the north main wall between Strongarm and Frogger. Starts on brown slab to small roof 30' above.


7 bolts, rap hangers
