Growth Spurt starts right and slightly uphill of the Alien on a brown face. Climb a slab to the start of the route. Face and crack climb past a couple bolts and gear until you step right, climbing up past more gear and bolts. Eventually trends left to a fun technical finish ending at two bolts and chains.

Stays in the shade almost all the time. Excellent for when the Mosaic Wall is baking or there are too many other climbers.


couple of finger sized cams or nuts.

In the middle when in doubt move right to the arete, then work back left to the crux finish. Likely .11b since part of a key hold broke near the top. Quality route and protects better than it appears.
