Spiderman buttress is home to many classic moderate climbs. As one of the most popular "backside" areas there is often a wait for the most popular routes here (spiderman). Climbs here have a spectacular backdrop of cascade peaks.
Head down the main trail, cross the river, and go past the dihedrals and main area. Take the trail up to asterik pass and scramble over the top. Head right (north) along climber's trails and follow signs to the west facing buttress.

Aside from Cosmos, this route is the best pebble-studded face climb I have done at Smith. The setting, rock, and lichen are all beautiful and so is the distance from the swarming hordes on the front side of the pass.Jam and lie-back a small, right-facing dihedral to a comfortable ledge. Pumpier than it looks. Clip a bolt, then step out onto the face and tiptoe up endless pebbles to the anchor. This moderate, somewhat sequential climbing is a treat....[more] Browse More Classics in OR
