Under the Spreading Atrophy
|319 page views|
This is a thin granite face route that starts off a block. First move is an in your face mantle and then it's thin to win from there. Wear your edging shoes and move up past 5 bolts before traversing right when it blanks out and finish via Pony Express.
This climb has gotten a bolt upgrade sometime in 2007, big thanks to whoever did it (John Robinson?) for removing the old manky leepers and putting in quality hardwear without damaging the stone.
Because it finishes on the same bolt anchor atop Pony Express, this is an excellent toprope after leading that climb.
It's good climbing, and would get more stars if it was completely independent...
Face just left of Pony Express, just left of the Podium.
5 bolts + chain anchors, bring some cams for the upper 30' of Pony Express.
