Get yer steep jamming on! Scramble up the BO Buttress gully for 20 feet to the start. Follow Sustained, but positive overhanging jams and crimps on a right leaning system of cracks to a one bolt anchor. The other bolt was chopped....back it up with a .75?

Walk off.


BO Buttress gully, shares start with Arachnophobia.

The name seems a common source of confusion, as most assume it's named after a furry spider. According to Dockins, Tarantella is a term for a sort of "mad dance". Great Gally line on steeper than usual terrain.

To make matters even more confusing the dance (Tarantella) is actually referencing the spider (tarantula)
