This beautiful route takes the center line straight out the middle of the right side of the Spray Wall proper. This is pristine crimp pulling at its finest.Start with a slab move that is quite a bit harder than it looks (5.12-), then head straight up to the body jam no-hands rest at the break before busting out the main headwall. This route is super continuous and ultra technical, with very satisfying moves the entire way. It's really amazing on this route what you can pull off of on this cli...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

Spray Cave <br /> <br />1. Anger Management, V11**  all good holds but one heinous crux crimp of death. Not sharp. <br />2. Spray Standard Left, B3/4**  campus jugs. <br />3. Spray Standard Right, F3/4?**  campus jugs. <br />4. Spray Prow, V7/8***  traverse from dihedral start with great moves to gain the overhung arete. <br />5. Head Banger, V7/8 *  low all the way.  There's also a version that off routes anything right of the crotch of the final dihedral. V9+? <br /> <br />There's also a Turd Line that starts crouching left of #1 on poor holds, one powerful move up to better crimps/edges and top out.  Finally, starting on this line and traversing the entire lip is a difficult, but not too appealing project. <br /> <br />Stars assume you avoided the guano at the exit of 2, 3, 4.

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!
