This route is just right of Tomahawk. It is at about the center of the Indian Wall, and the first pitch ends in a pit 50 feet up the wall. This route simply offers friction and edging all the way to the pit. The crux is between the first and last bolt.


Two bolts protect the route (not 3 as the Goss guide indicates). There are chain anchors in the pit.

FYI There has always been a variation on Kindred Spirits. The left line had 3 bolts, the right 4. When the new pitches were added, someone felt it was necessary to add 2 bolts to the first pitch, not unexpected considering... Feb 13, 2010

Another line of bolts has been added to this route, and one or two more pitches above. There are six new bolts to the right of the original two bolts; this route is well protected now and certainly no longer an "R".

According to "Rock Climbs of Southwest Utah, Second Edition" the rating is 5.10c so the upper pitch(es) must be harder. (We only did the first pitch, top-roping it for the kids).

The new guide describes two pitches; however, I counted three anchors: the original chain anchor in the hole, a hanger-and-ring anchor probably 30 or 40 feet above the original anchor, then the final anchor indicated in the guidebook. New pitch(es) FA S. Walenfeld, J. Howard. Oct 17, 2006
