The Spore offers some steeper problems than its neighbor Smith Family Boulders, however, the rock is much looser and holds are breaking off on some of the established problems. Despite this fact, there continue to be some decent problems to work on this boulder. A loss of a hold only makes it more of a challenge, right?

Getting There 

The large boulder a short distance to the east of Smith Family Boulders.

New high quality bp's have been established on the north face called The Spore V9+ (roof) and Washburn Effect V7 - V8 var. (hand rail traverse into The Spore)
The chossy southeast face etc. should be ignored.
