Weave Your Spell

Description

Immediately up-stream of Razor Hueco Arete (# 28) is another fin-like formation with several routes. Running up this dark grey wall is first, Witches Tit followed by Weave Your Spell. Both are good, Weave seems a bit more friendly (aka, a bit easier) and picks out some very sharp edges with very reachy moves on largely poor feet. This fine little addition suffers only from being way too short. The climbing was a bit better than on Tit because most the edges are very positive. This was a terrific line.

Protection

Bring just a few draws and a rope.

[Hide Comment] Musta broke? Sent Witches Tit 3rd try, decided to get on this, and was confronted with a very hard boulder problem right at 1st bolt (like 20 feet up by the way) followed by nice, easier, .12 climbing. Really hard seems to be the consensus between Andy, Lydia, and I. May 13, 2012

[Hide Comment] I would bring a boulder pad for this one. The first clip is pretty high. May 23, 2013

[Hide Comment] Upgraded to ASCA glue-ins and Mussy anchors! We also added a lower bolt to protect the boulder problem off of the ground. Everyone who climbed it agreed it was much harder than Witches Tit (we had all just sent that one). I think a critical hold broke through the boulder problem that starts after the slab. Feel like .12c now. Sep 22, 2019
