  • Description 

    This route was put up, ground up, onsight. Climb through the center of the Hot Spur wall. It is fun, adventure climbing!

    P1. Start up the "Alternate Start" to roof wall, but veer left up left-facing flakes to the base of orange rock and a left-facing corner, 5.7.

    P2. Climb the right of two left-facing corners via a hand crack up to a rotten band, traverse right and up a big flake to a belay on the right end of a long roof, 5.9 R.

    P3. Traverse left under the lower of two roofs, to its end, pulling over at a thuddy flake, up a corner before escaping left onto the slab, with a belay up and right on the slab, 5.10.

    P4. Finish with the Culp-Wade.

    Walk off the left.


    Just up hill from Sunstar, beginning with the first 20 or so feet of Roof Walls "Alternate start" before busting out left.

    The would be first ascentionist attempted to climb the slab left of this start, resulting in a broken hold and groundfall. Hence that is why we started up the alternate start instead.


    Standard Eldo rack to a #4 Camalot. Double ropes are nice do to suspect rock and wandering nature.
