Kiss of the Spiderwoman

5.9, Trad, 90 ft (27 m),  Avg: 3.6 from 32 votes
FA: unknown
Wyoming > Fremont Canyon > Gauntlet

Description

One of the best 5.9s in the canyon IMO. Starts as a few moves of face to the bolt to thin fingers. Then 30 ft of thin hands/loose fingers to hands and a final short OW at the top. It can be found about 3/4 the way down the Gauntlet on the right. Look for a single bolt at the start of a nice dihedral. A great well protected lead. You can walk off the top if you want to. Two bolt anchor at the top.

Protection

Reg trad rack; (3-4).75 Camalots and (1)# 4 Camalot for the top. No #3 Camolot needed.

[Hide Comment] I'm not much for criticizing bolts, but the one protection bolt on this climb is too high to protect the face climbing below, and right next to good nut placements that are placed from a no-hands stance.

Awesome climb, regardless. Oct 31, 2016

[Hide Comment] Do not bring a #3BD you won't need it. Instead a #4 BD for the final moves. Extra 0.75 are nice to have. Nov 3, 2018
