Description

"Spinner Bait" takes the leftmost, overhung corner and arete. Once one climbs past the 1st few moves on questionable stone the line becomes interesting, powerful, and enjoyable.

Still a very new line as of this date of posting, so be careful of possible loose rock, and all belayers are advised to where a helmet while belaying on this feature.

Location

This feature is located up hill and in between "The Primo Wall" and "The Crystal Tower."

The best approach will depend on what time of the year it is. You cross the river in different places during the winter but spring, summer, and early fall one would use the Tyrolean traverse located by "The Armory."

"Spinner Bait" takes the leftmost over hung corner and arete.

Protection

7 bolts and 2 ring anchors. Belayers should where a helmet. Most of the draws are going to stay fixed. I plan to put quick links up next time I'm out, so please don't take the draws that are on the wall. Thank you.

This is a pretty cool route. More powerful and tricky than it appears from the ground as well. Be careful of the loose rock, but it's not too bad and can be safely avoided. I'll try to get it trundled while i'm up there next time. Feb 4, 2010
Thanks for coming over to "The Guppy" and displaying your sick belay work, Jason. Couldn't have done it with out you, man!! Can't wait to put in the next few lines on this new fun rock feature. You should join me, bro, it gets lots of great winter sun!! Later. Jan 14, 2010

Nice job crushing this sick line bro! Wierd thru the first 3 bolts, but 4-stars after the ledge! Need a sledgehammer for cleaning the beginning! Jan 14, 2010
