Sam's Spam (5.9+).

Description 

This THE historical top-rope route of the crag! A classic. It was trundled and retro-bolted in 2011. This is the leftmost route in the belay gully on a dead vertical face. Start up a left-trending ramp for several bolts, get over some big ledge syndrome, and step out right and up to a face crux. Pull through some juggy, airy overhangs up high. Slap a hand over the very top of the dike near a resilient pinyon and clip the anchor.

Location 

This is the leftmost route in the belay gully. Look for a left-trending ramp-dihedral. It is directly under the tree at the top of the crag.

Protection 

A dozen bolts to a ring anchor, backed up to a tree. A HELMET! It's very easy to set a top-rope, but be careful on the hike up so avoid knocking rocks on others below!

Where did the Spam can go? Did somebody get hungry?
Great route with very good bolting- no rope drag!
