its tradition right?

Description 

Can either do direct start through the bushes or do a slightly less direct up the block at the bottom and traverse left into the crack proper. It widens from #3 Camalots to #6 Camalots and then pinches back down at the top by the anchors. As far as I know this is the shortest route to the rim, this requires the party to climb easy 5.5ish terrain past the anchors for about 5 ft. Might be one chock stone that's a wee bit loose down lower although easily avoided and not easily shifted otherwise solid rock quality and pretty moderate OW climbing.


Location 

SS is the furthest right route on Sparks wall and is one of the most prominent corners on the wall, its the first obvious corner left of the ruins. Approach via the normal Sparks trail and continue right past the springs and Y crack.


Protection 

1 #3, 2 #3.5, 1 #4, 3 #5, 2 #6 Camalots. There are 2 chained anchors at the top.
