This route is split into two sections by a large ledge but both sections are fun, well-protected, and worth doing. My guidebook warned of a runout in the middle of the route, but this is just on the humongous ledge where the climbing is 3rd class or easier. The bolting above the ledge is great; it'd be hard to hit it.
The first half of the climb is up a slighty overhung corner. This is the crux. The second half is a fun and straightforward face climb with cool pockets to pull on.
This route is on the left side of Spiney Ridge. It begins in a left-facing corner between the popular routes Nalalator and Tree Trimmer.
10 bolts to anchor.
