Contemplating the finish of The Spoon.

The Spoon has on=e directive. How much can you scare yourself mantling 10 feet off the ground? Many a beached whale have been spotted here, as solid hands lead to highball sketchyness to pull you over the top.

This route is on the downhill side of the boulder, check the photo.


pads, the more the better. It's also a good idea if you've got an extra to wrap the tree to the right of the problem.

Dave Diegelman broke his arm falling off the mantle, while Augie Klein and I unsuccessfully spotted him (1975?). No crash pads back then.
