The Spinning Back Kick dihedral.

Access is always an issue here. MORE INFO >>>


The opening moves are pretty good climb the shallow dihedral to the top. Thin climbing (over small, marginal protection) leads to a set cracks separated by a small bulge. Continue up the good face above to the same large ledge shared by most of the climbs on the cliff. Be aware that there may be a little poison ivy in the cracks, but its easy to get around.


To the right of Pile Driver is a black water streak that ascends a corner behind a tree. This is the start of Spinning Back Kick.


Standard rack, the crux protects with small gear. Anchor off trees.
