This route takes the prominent line out the hanging arete via multiple seams and slopers. Start by preclipping the first two bolts, as the start is very awkward stepping off the ledge and onto the route. The crux hits right of the deck with a very difficult cross through on small holds which leads to a foot cutting throw to the big, obvious chalked jug. From here on out, it's stamina and accuracy that will determine success. Mid route at the fifth bolt, it is advisable to have a long draw to clip, because the clipping holds there are not great. Technical, powerful, sloping, and continuous, this route is a must do at the grade.
This route takes the line straight out the hanging arete on the left side of the Spray Wall proper. It is left of Rapture.
8 bolts to cold shuts.

This was the first of the steep routes at the Spray wall. I did the FA with Dan Durland pulling in the next run.

We just had draws stolen off of this route as well as Spew. Whoever it is, they must work quickly. We figured we would just leave them up overnight, returned the next afternoon, and they were gone. From experience, we never leave draws on the first bolt, so whoever it is they are either a competent climber or stick clipping their way up. My friend had just bought a nice new set of the Black Diamond FreeWire draws too. Luckily ours on Spew were old but still! Nobody leave your draws on this wall! REWARD for anyone that comes up with who may have the draws!
