Description

This climbs starts with a really neat finger crack in the left side of a box/chimney feature that exits left at its top then climbs steep rock up into an alcove at which point the climber moves leftwards to a broken rock section followed by a final steep section of rock with interesting big but sloping edges and flared cracks. The opening finger crack has nice square edges here and there for the feet keeping the grade low. This climb makes for a great on-sight that protects very well. Named after the abundance of live arachnids and all their web trappings found along the way. This route is seldom climbed.

Location

This rock climb is found way over on the right side of Porkchop Buttress, on the wall starboard side of the route "No Exit".

Protection

Great small cams and wires in the starting finger crack section. Use extension draws or slings here because the climb goes left for upper section. The upper section protects well in horizontals and flared cracks with mid sized cams.
