clip the first bolt and dive into the crux. Use the small side pull and reach high to a small crimp just to the left of the second bolt. Step up and grab the half drill hole and figure out how to mantle on top of the slopey corner. follow the arete to the top

There are some indication this route was drytooled at some point. It is a very fun rock climbing route and it would be a shame if it was damaged from drytooling. This is the only route I would like to see not drytooled anymore.


The arete immediately left of the main ice climbing flow. It is just above a newly installed bench.


6 bolts

Cool route Jeff, tricky crux. Could be 11.d, especially harder for shorter people.

Climbed Spray for first time this weekend. Very challenging crux. Could not get through it cleanly. Enjoyed the top half of the route, would like to see the beta for getting from 1st bolt through 3rd.

Why is this route PG13?

i think jeff gave it PG because if one were to fall in between the traverse and the next bolt, she might swing into the arete/slab. to me, that's the only reason.
