Description

This line follows the nice crack to the left of Kevin Spies the Line. I would not consider it a variation, since the bolt line is far enough to the right to be out of reach.

It may or may not be the same as route "G" in the Table Top main page. The crux is probably deciding where to stop and place your first pro - stances were good, so I ran it out until my feet were nearly at the height of Kevin's second bolt.

If 5.7 Dihedral at Lookout Mountain Crag is a 5.7, then this is 5.6+ or 5.7- and flows enjoyably well. You should be able to TR off the anchors for Kevin.

Location

Start in the slot for Kevin Spies the Line (see the picture from Mar. 14, 2010). Follow the crack up and left. Rappel from the anchors for Kevin Spies the Line.

Protection

This was lead on small to medium nuts, one #3 Ballnut, and one larger nut (WC #8, I think). I didn't use any cams, may have used a Torque Nut. The line eats gear pretty well.

The first placement I decided to make was a WC #1, though if you want to place lower or higher you can use a different size pretty easily. If you have doubles of small nuts, then the Ballnut isn't needed.

You could use all nuts for protection, but small cams up to a #1 Camalot work well. Sep 14, 2016
