Routes in Spike Rock

Description [Suggest Change]

Spike Rock is located up the hill from the Lobby, just down and west of the tree slab. Can be idenitified by a steep little overhung face with chalked up flakes that is partially sheltered by a tree with a slab at its base, as well as a striking (when viewed from the west) south arete.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Pull yourself away from the crowds in the Hole and walk up the hill following the trail until you reach the tree slab. Look down and west a little from the slab and you'll see a sizeable boulder. This is Spike Rock.

Great for warming up! Jan 16, 2003
A good problem that rarely gets done, and is about V3/4 is to start under with boths hands on the small jug. Shoot out straight right to the arete w/ right hand, pop up about 3' w/ right hand to a sloping feature, heel hook w. left foot about 1' left of left hand, and go up to the mantle shelf w/ left hand..Muy Macho! i jole!

This description doesn't do justice to the boulder. All the problems are short, shady and fun. The problems leading to the mantle and Magic Trick are safe and have room for a pad. The lower problems (Finger Dimple, ABS and Cocaine Corner) have bad landings but are really fun. I trimmed the pig sticker broken branches on the tree at the start yesterday. Aug 20, 2009
