BETA PHOTO: Topo of Why Go Left


Work up onto a broad ledge and then staying right along the arête, pull up through the large bulges. These holds are awesome.

Reach up onto the large scoop and find one of the best hidden holds in all of Split Rock. From the scoop, pull up onto the steep upper face using small but rough holds that seem to always be where you need them.

Once on the upper face, be sure to look over the edge on the right; nice right?

Work upwards and once you reach the crack follow it to the left. Take the crack and its associated ledge system to the top and a two-bolt anchor.


On the north face of The Spire. Route starts on large ledge on west side of the north face.


7 bolts and 2 bolt anchor with rap rings
