Description

Among the best of the grade at the Iris, Spurs features flawless, stone multiple cruxes, and a long section of joyous pocket cranking. Despite its length, the line is quite bouldery, featuring two roof encounters, with the burly crux clearing the second roof with memorable exposure, just below the anchor.

Begin with a tricky mantle to reach the first roof. Big reaches & jugs gain the stellar slab and a great rest. Cruise up 5.10 pockets to a good shake below the high roof. More huge reaches between great pockets gain the lip and a pair of desperate lunges to establish over the lip.

If you have a rope gun with you, for an excellent 5.10 toprope, skirt the low roof via the groove to the right, then move back left to follow Spurs' slabby mid-section to reach the base of the high roof.

Location

Two routes climb out the low roof on the central Aspen Glade wall. This is the right-most of those two routes.

Protection

~8 bolts to 2 BA.

Soft. Roof crux is no harder than maybe V3, and you can get fully rested before it on jugs under the roof Aug 7, 2016
