Description Suggest change

The Spear is capped by an excellent finger crack crux near the top, but you have to pay your dues to get there. Start up junky rock on either side of the detached column, making sure not to kill yourself or your belayer with a loose block. I suspect this column has shifted out from the wall since the Epeldi guidebook was written. Once on top of the column, place a high piece, take a few deep breaths and punch it to the chains.

Location Suggest change

Just right of the very hard looking sport climb, Rainbow Warrior. The route name is painted at the base.

Protection Suggest change

Gear. Crux pieces are micro to finger size.
