Description

This route is the one you came to Spider Wall to climb. Steep prow with good holds, great position, and a crux at the top. This route stays as dry as the prominent part of Lizard Wall. As of March 2018 all the draws were permanent with maybe 5-6 being steel cable draws.

Consider wearing a helmet as the belayer--the bottom (getting to the high first bolt) is quite alpine. Make sure to knot your rope and pay attention to the climber when lowering off the anchors as the hillside overhangs a fair bit.

Location

Hike out to Spider wall by heading 5-10 minutes left of Lizard wall along the same trail. Look for the obvious steep Prow with permanent gear.

Protection

9 bolts plus anchors

There is a first bolt to the left at the start of this climb that you can stick clip from the ledge. The nut appears as if it is barely on the last few threads of the bolt but seems fused onto the bolt, and when I tried to turn it to tighten it the whole bolt spun... So stick the perma if you can.
