DescriptionVisible on the drive in on the right end of the Wooly Spider Boulder, 20' right of an unpleasant-looking wide crack.
Make your way to the base (shared with an evil Cat Claw Acacia Tree) and climb a grainy, right-slanting, flared hand crack to it's end, cursing as you try and go up as the thorns try and hold you back. Mantle the top of the crack and clip a bolt, then make grainy friction moves up, up and up to reach a protruding dark knob which is mantled to reach the second bolt. A fall above the first bolt would land one directly into the evil tree, which I suppose adds more incentive not to fall. More grainy slab climbing concludes this lovely climb.
A real pile and not at all recommendable, but it would be a lot better if the tree was trimmed back some. As is it's a totally unpleasant experience. Minus one star out of five.
