This rig deserves at least 3 stars. Very nice .10 climbing with a hard 11b crux between the 3rd and 4th bolts, I believe. Dec 8, 2014

Pretty good route! The crux definitely at the 4th bolt.... I've seen people head out left to the arete and then cut across (which definitely cheats the crux of the climb) but is possible! If you wish to stay direct, crimp and smear your way up (on minimal) feet to good good matching crimp and finish with easier climbing! Nov 9, 2013

Great route you can go out left at the crux around the 4th bolt and get a jug and rest better. However, this hold could fall off. Jan 14, 2012

This climb, like so many others on Spiney, is awesome! Powerful moves down low lead to a good stance below the crux. Small crimps and very thin feet get you past the business and the climbing backs off above. Mar 17, 2008
