Cheers is a fun corner climb on the left end of Spiney Ridge. Climb the obvious corner left of Tractatus. There are a few loose rocks in places, but the stemming should keep you too busy to notice.


6 bolts to anchors.

Ok route with some jams up top. Sep 27, 2004
This was a good line. The top has some lose rock (scary flake climbing out of the corner) and the anchors were in a strange place. It is worth doing if you're in the area. Jan 2, 2009

I pulled a pineapple-sized block out of the crack near the top. There's a couple more loose ones in there. Sep 16, 2012

The flake Luke talks about is several hundred pounds located at the top of the climb in the crack to the right. It is loose and only attached (??) at the back of the flake.

It's the flake above the woman's arm in the photo with "arm bar."

There is considerable chalk on the flake, so people have pulled on it...I didn't want to even touch it, and I'm used to climbing in the Tetons where there is considerable loose rock.

Instead of grabbing the flake, the crack to the left offers absolutely bomber hand jams, and there are good footholds without resorting to the flake.

Be careful out there! Apr 9, 2013

The moves are really fun and much better than Damn Right I've Got the Moves... until the crack and the scary flake. It is still there, still scary looking, and still got lots of chalk on it. I completely avoided it by jamming the hand crack and the offwidth, but my partner pulled on it on TR and it stayed. I still wouldn't want to pull on it too much though. If the anchor was below the roof, I would've given this route 3 stars for sure. Dec 5, 2015

I found this to be a little more runout than other comparable climbs in the area but lots of fun, easy stemming. Clipping the anchor was a weird reach. Mar 18, 2019
