Description

Tarantula offers a left hand start into the same crack system as Gargantua. This route makes a great onsight proposition with nice rests and plenty of protection. The overhanging start throws the hardest moves soon off the ground, and the pumpy hand traverse that leads into the obvious crack is just as exciting. The thin crack above is as fun as it looks, but keep your shoes race-laced for the top out.

Protection

The lower crux is well protected by small wires and TCU's. Save a couple hand sized cams for the horizontal below the upper crux. Long slings at the bottom of the route and through the traverse make all the difference on the top out. The route is wonderfully protected.
