Description

The face on this route may not be cute nor one of Santa Maria's finest, but don't let that scare you away. If your looking for entertainment this is a Gentlemens route that keeps on giving all the way to the end. Its tons of fun and you wont be disappointed.

The crux of this wild beast feels like your getting a lap dance from a one ton rhino as you bear hug your way up the belly to the horn. Double bag this sleazy rig for a deep pump that you couldn't find anywhere else on the Central Coast but the Tor. Just remember this Spearmint Rhino is in Santa Maria so it may not be pretty, but your gonna have fun.

Location

This route is just left of Hia Kirate and goes strait up to the top of the Tor. Start at the top of the rock stairs, look for the Rhino horn just left of the 3rd bolt.

Definitely use it, Fixed

The crux for me is pulling the thinner moves past bolt 4. The heel hook move to clip the anchors feels wild and is awesome. Also, the fall from the top is long and fun. Feb 29, 2016
