Checking out the local fauna. Random Euro tail on ...


A horse face prom date. Good enough for what it is; but you wouldn't want to take this home EVERY night.

Starts up greasy but low-angled, white licheny stuff. A bucket full of "meh" until it gets steeper. Then pull yer average (but good) face climbing for the next 20 meters until you're clippin' chains and feelin' like ol' Herc himself.

Fair warning: Stay left towards the top, lest you clip "Tales of Greek Heros" sneezing distance to the right, which is ACTUALLY the first line of the Spartan wall. Clip it accidentally, and some dude with a thick beard and crushing abs of titanium will run up and bello, "This. Is. SPARTAN WALL!"


Out of the Spartacus cave proper. Starts off the white buttress just left of the Spartan wall. Actually? This should be listed under the Spartan wall. But you know those crazy Greeks!s


A dozen plus draws plus a 2-bolt/2-'biner anchor. A 70 would PROBABLY reach this one—but for god's sake, man, tie a barrel knot in the end of that sucker!

This route deserves more good marks than the description gives it. The start is easy but has some excellent incut crimps. Above is a continous technical dance with just enough space between bolts to make you think twice about placing a sloppy foot. Better than Les Amazones.
