The AMC Hornet was a compact automobile made by the American Motors Corporation (AMC) beginning with the 1970 model year and continuing through the 1977 model year. The Hornet replaced the compact Rambler. Right now, there is probably a Hornet sitting idle in your fat Aunt Sally's garage, an unsuitable ending for a low profile vehicle that actually accomplished quite a bit within a rather unnoticed career.

The Spearfish Canyon Hornet sits atop a pedetal that it shares with The Spirit. In fact, it is the route just to the right of The Spirit. And, in fact, one could argue that it resembles your fat Aunt Sally's left buttcheek since it is so rotund and dimpled.

Don't let this route just sit in the garage like your fat Aunt Sally's rust bucket! Don't let this climb be lost to annuals of the used car lot! Take it for a spin! Those that love their routes short and punchy better strap in for the ride!


The Spirit, The Hornet and The Concord are three worthwhile routes that have been unfairly housed in the "shed" far to the left of the AMC Wall's "main garage". They are up on a pedastal thus stick clipping the first bolt on the harder climbs is recommended so that we don't have to climb down the hill to retrieve your mangled bodies because you were too obtuse to wear a seat belt! Drive safely.


Eight quickdraws and a stickclip.
