Spinning Mars

5.11b, Trad, 80 ft (24 m),  Avg: 2.5 from 4 votes
FA: unknown
Washington > Central Region > Frenchman Coule… > Sunshine Wall > Near End of Sunshine…

Description

This is the wavy finger crack to the left of Party in your Pants. This is an excellent climb that protects better than it looks. Solid finger locks and tricky stems all the way to the top.

The hangers were removed as of April 2010, so you need to move left across a column which skips the hardest move of the climb if you traverse low.

Location

This is the first climb to the left of the popular Party in your Pants.

Protection

up to 3" cams with lots of mid-sized stoppers and one bolt.

[Hide Comment] I was climbing this last Nov. and Jim Yoder was there, he says Marlene Ford made the first ascent. I guess someone stole the hangers, this still happens at Vantage. I added hangers and chain, 3/2016 Feb 20, 2015
