Another really great route with lots of flowy movement and no distinct crux.

Big moves on decent cobbles leads to a good rest in a sandy jug feature. Sprint through 25 feet of crossovers, big moves and committing lunges to better holds before doing the final crux of Gun Tower.

This route might have been a bit manufactured, but damn it's fun!


On the left side of the cave. Look for the black hangers.


Bolts and a two bolt anchor.

FYI- To stay true to the theme of the compound, the name of route, Neptune Spear, refers to operation that killed OBL.
