L to R R to L Alpha
Spry Look is an incredibly sustained, technical face climb up a beautiful orange and black wall, high above Lake Lure. The grade is kind of a joke - while there are probably no 5.12 moves on the route, it is still one of the hardest .12b's I've tried. It is best described as 5 or 6 long v2 and v3 boulder problems stacked on top of each other with nothing that even resembles a rest. Technical sequences that, once deciphered, aren't hard for the grade - but they go on forever!
Obvious orange and black headwall on the left side of Hanging Chain. Look for a dirtyish grey slab below the vertical, blank looking wall.
Small stoppers and/or TCU's protect the first 30 feet, then it becomes a sport climb.
