Description [Edit]

Get yer steep jamming on! Scramble up the BO Buttress gully for 20 feet to the start. Follow Sustained, but positive overhanging jams and crimps on a right leaning system of cracks to a one bolt anchor. The other bolt was chopped....back it up with a .75?

Walk off.

Location [Edit]

BO Buttress gully, shares start with Arachnophobia.

Protection [Edit]

The name seems a common source of confusion, as most assume it's named after a furry spider. According to Dockins, Tarantella is a term for a sort of "mad dance". Great Gally line on steeper than usual terrain. Aug 15, 2011

Thanks for changing this Ty. Aug 15, 2011
To make matters even more confusing the dance (Tarantella) is actually referencing the spider (tarantula)

Cheers! Aug 16, 2011
