BETA PHOTO: Start by splitting the first two roofs.


Breaking Ground starts up the dihedral between two small roofs, the first bolt is a rusty hanger 15' off the deck. From here continue up the face trending left under a right roof, pull the 5' overhanging left roof. Keep climbing on the upper dihedral to the second anchor of Spice World 35m up the wall. Rap with two ropes or a single using the first anchor of Spice World.


Follow the approach trail up and right to the middle of the main climbing area amphitheater. Scramble onto a large ramp and follow it 45 degrees up and back left. There is a belay bolt located 30' up the ramp.


7 Bolts, Gear to 2", 2 Bolt Anchor

I like this route. Don't think it gets a lot of traffic. Old bolts and gear to fill in the gaps when you can.
