Thin crack climbing leads to small flaring crack and weird crack and face climbing crux. It is a cool route on good stone.


It is just right of Spider Lady.


RPs and other small gear. There used to be a pin (now replaced) at the crux and then maybe a medium Friend for the upper moves to the anchor at the first pitch of Spider Lady.

Redpoint June, 1998.

#3 slider and #4 RP were essential. Excellent and technical.

Harrison and I competed on this one. He got it a couple of days before I before I did. I'd think at the time, it might have been one of the harder routes of its type in the Platte. Super technical climbing, and in EBs no less. I was obsessed with the line, dragging non-climbing friends to belay me after class that Fall. There's a route at Chair Rocks that's very similar, and I got obsessed with that one as well a few years later.

Thanks for the work, Jason. I ripped that fixed pin out whipping onto it sometime in the late '80s, I think. I had placed an RP just below it thankfully. It was a pretty short pin, maybe 1 1/2" long if I remember right. Hopefully you got in something solid.
