Pitch Two- Head up past two bolts and catch a crack(5.10a). Traverse right at the third bolt and take easier cracks to the anchor.
Pitch Three- A sport pitch with a tough start(5.10a) easing into more moderate face climbing(5.7-8) after the first twenty feet. Climb until you reach the tree anchor.
Pitch Four. Continue up fun cracks (5.6-7) to the top build a gear anchor or belay off of a tree.
"From milepost 165, park in the large pullout and find a climbers trail at the far west end of the pullout, leading into a boulder field. The trail continues through the woods leading down to Early Winters creek. Cross on a log (may be washed out), or bring sandals to wade the knee deep water. From there, the trail climbs up and left through trees into a clearing that is the runout of a large avalanche path (Snow until mid season). Cross the clearing and climb to the upper left edge where a trail will take off close to the rock. Three small, dirty and slabby sections are equipped with fixed ropes to ease the ascent. The Spontaneity Arete Route begins on a ledge at the left hand toe of the ridge next to a large tree."

Approach time to Spontaneity Arete is about 1 hour. Approach time to Spontaneous distraction via the gully is an hour and a half for non-super-humans in average physical shape.
From the top of Spontaneous distraction scramble down to the top of pitch three and rap the route. One 70 meter rope is sufficient. If desired it is also possible to rappel the bottom pitches of Spontaneity Arete rather than hiking down the gully.
