Featured Route For Spray Wall
Middle of the crux on Surefire.

Surefire 5.13c/d 8b 31 X 31 E8 7a  CO : South Platte : ... : Spray Wall
Start on the first two bolts of Spew and fire straight up to Rapture's anchors. One of the best and most direct lines on the wall. I don't know if I officially have the FA or not. Either way it is a great route that I know will get a lot of traffic. No clue on the grade either 13c or d other sends will tell....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Spray Cave <br /> <br />1. Anger Management, V11**  all good holds but one heinous crux crimp of death. Not sharp. <br />2. Spray Standard Left, B3/4**  campus jugs. <br />3. Spray Standard Right, F3/4?**  campus jugs. <br />4. Spray Prow, V7/8***  traverse from dihedral start with great moves to gain the overhung arete. <br />5. Head Banger, V7/8 *  low all the way.  There's also a version that off routes anything right of the crotch of the final dihedral. V9+? <br /> <br />There's also a Turd Line that starts crouching left of #1 on poor holds, one powerful move up to better crimps/edges and top out.  Finally, starting on this line and traversing the entire lip is a difficult, but not too appealing project. <br /> <br />Stars assume you avoided the guano at the exit of 2, 3, 4.

DRAW THIEF!

We just had draws stolen off of this route as well as Spew. Whoever it is, they must work quickly. We figured we would just leave them up overnight, returned the next afternoon, and they were gone. From experience, we never leave draws on the first bolt, so whoever it is they are either a competent climber or stick clipping their way up. My friend had just bought a nice new set of the Black Diamond FreeWire draws too. Luckily ours on Spew were old but still! Nobody leave your draws on this wall! REWARD for anyone that comes up with who may have the draws!
