Ryan Bogus getting into the crux of Spider Nutz.

Description 

Spider Nutz is a short but strenuous bolted line between the Ole No. 2 dihedral and Smokey. Bolts below a crack angle up and left through a bouldery and thin feet section 5 meters off the ground.

Ice often forms above here to the ledge where there is a two bolt anchor. This is the same ledge to the right of the anchor at the top of the first half of Ole No. 2.

Location 

Starting on very steep ground where rotten looking cracks head up and right, this bolted line veers left.

Protection 

Bolted to the anchor.

There are two starts to this route: the direct start up the crack and the "Bush Pilot" alternate start on the right that goes up the left-facing, blocky dihedral then moves back left into the crack - somewhat harder. Eight bolts to the chains.
