Description

This is a great winter spot. It gets early morning sun, and it stays for a good while. Spring and Fall will probably be best for climbing on this formation.

Getting There

This feature is located uphill and in between "The Primo Wall" and "The Crystal Tower."

The best approach will depend on what time of the year it is. You cross the river in different places during the winter but spring, summer, and early fall one would use the Tyrolean traverse located by "The Armory."

Yes... Jason is so right!! A HELMET is a MUST until the starting ledge and the 1st few feet of "Spinner Bait" are fully clean of any lose rock!!! For now, climb here with care or just wait a few weeks until I find the time to go and clean the lose rock from the ledges and wall to a safe state!!!

The climbing is great and the stone is good, however, a very small band of lose rock at the start of the routes needs to be cleaned really well to gain the supper stone safely. It will be worth the effort to climb here is a few weeks and the two climbs here are great!! They are just a little unsafe at this present moment. So have fun and enjoy but for now where a helmet while belaying or even climbing at "The Guppy" formation.

Thanks, Luke Childers Jan 17, 2010
