Description

This formation boasts a couple of easy fifth class lines on its north face, an ugly crack, and a very "crunchy" bolted face up its west shoulder. Its a great spot to take beginners, with a fifteen second approach from the car, a "real" summit (no walk off), and routes that can be done by just about anyone in any type of footwear. If there's nothing fixed on top, you can descend by downclimbing one of the 5.2s, or have someone on the ground tie-off one end of the rope on one side and rap off the other.

Getting There

This boulder lies at the north end of the Stirrup Towers (the north-south ridge of formations on the left as you pull into the parking area). It is easily identified by the grovelly chimney/widecrack on the right side of its north face.

There is now a beefy chain anchor at the top of Arachnids and a two cold-shut anchor between the tops of Tarantula and Wooly Spider. Feb 22, 2010

One of the hangers above arachnids is a spinner, and the cold shut that was glued is getting loose. This is a great place to take someone for their first time on the rock. Sep 14, 2008

A great rock for novice climbers that's similar to the Wave Boulder (near Barker Dam) except it also has some crack climbing. Easy climbs right off the road and a distinct lack of people most of the time. Feb 7, 2005
