Second bolt on Spinefish.


Just where the ramp/crack behind the bushes meets the ground on the right side is a four bolt clip up with an interesting sequence. The rock looks friable but it is solid. I did not do the pitch above, but it looks good.

Per dbyte: Starts 10 feet left of The Ballerina (aka NoName 6). REALLY thin & desperate start to more difficulty through the 1st 20 feet. Get past this & cruise to the anchors. Groundfall potential if the 2nd or 3rd clips are botched.

This is a compilation of descriptions and information.


Several draws and a rope. Per dbyte: 3 bolts.

If you're going to try this route bring crash pads. The first 2 clips are VERY desperate.
