Detritus Spite Us

5.10+, Trad, 90 ft (27 m),  Avg: 3.2 from 19 votes
FA: Wade Forrest 2011
Arizona > Northern Arizona > Sycamore Canyon > Volunteer Canyo… > S Side > 5. The Iron Wall


Detritus Spite Us is a fantastic right angling line that really captures your eye when taking in the wall from across canyon. DSU serves up everything from fingers to hands jamming, awesome stemming, and a roof cap move that is both cruxy and beautiful.

Rappel 90' to small, obvious belay ledge. Be careful when setting the rap line to make sure you will hit the ledge.

Start off of small belay ledge and work your way towards the left hand crack. Pass several engaging moves to get established in the stem box, and then pick your path of gear. At the roof, take a deep breath and commit to the very airy left exit with heel hooks, jugs, and maybe even a small swing! Romp to the top.


Middle of the Iron Wall. Rap down the Bong Route.


Set of doubles from fingers to hands, small-medium-large wires. Runners.
