V3 The Shield - Topout is a little sketch but othe...


There is a vague shield-like protrusion of harder rock on the southern face of the Spore, which is how to locate this climb. Use various sustained sidepulls to crank up over this bulge. The topout is a little loose.

This route is the easiest to identify on this boulder, and probably has the most sustainable rock. There are some interesting routes to the right of this where there is evidence of holds breaking.


Located on the Suth face towards the west side of the boulder.

The last few holds are in the process of remodeling. For now there is a slightly harder topout to the right of the problem which seems to be holding together much better with only a grade of an add on.
