DescriptionA small finger crack to the right of Spiderman. Great route to practice setting nuts; you can zip it up real tight if you want. Highly recommended as an intro to placing trad pro.
Two bolts at the top for a great anchor. Once the TR is set, the slab to the left, between Spiderman, is a fun face to play around on.
LocationObvious crack to the right of Spiderman (a classic 2/3 pitch trad route) at the Spiderman buttress just south of Mesa Verde Wall over on the West Side Crags.
