BETA PHOTO: Nearing the top of Huh?!?


Crux is serious, really prepare yourself mentally for this one. I climbed it in Five Ten approach shoes and as this was the chosen style during the first ascent, I would appreciate if crampons were not used on this route. I also free soloed the first ascent without preview on rappel, but if you need to rope up, it will probably go in about 6 pitches.


This gem can be found on the right side of the road while journeying north along the Spray/Smith Dorian Trail. There is a section of blasted rock on the road before the Spray Lakes reservoir.

Looks great at least as long a climb as most of the FA's on here. Keep up the good work.I really think there is an epidemic among climbers of acrophobia.
