A really good line that crosses a The Spiral and finishes at the top of the Cardiac Arete. Scramble up to a platform below The Pinnacle's left/west face. Begin up a steep, featured face and climb to a bolt. Follow the face up and left placing gear, then cross over, above the roof of The Spiral, onto the buttresses upper face. Continue left past the crux clipping two more bolts. A fun mixed climb with great protection.

You can take this down a few notches by finishing right on The Spiral.


Located in the middle of Practice Wall's front face, Cardiac Bypass starts on a flat ledge behind a scrub tree. This line lies directly right and up from The Spiral.


A light, single set of cams up to 4 inches, runners and draws.

can you add the route description for the spiral? does the spiral go up the pinnacle? Jun 14, 2013

the spiral starts in the dihedral just right of cardiac arete (fully bolted arete) on the left side of the crag. climb the dihedral, pull the little roof and aim up and right for the notch. climb right and around the back of the pillar. follow/spiral around to the obvious crack and weakness. end on top at an anchor. single rack and slings, you may want a couple extra hand pieces Jun 16, 2013
