Chad on the Spur


Follow the arete, then move left to the anchors.


On the arete/face to the right of the tallest face on the Tall Wall. Lower Off.

You might want to mention that the route moves hard left at the top, to the mussy anchors at the top of Tall T.

Fun moves, route does cut hard left at the end. Got my rope stuck in a crack, had to climb up quite a bit to retrieve.

Careful getting your draws back on the way down as you have to swing over or tram to get them. Fun route but the flakes feel holllowwwww.

Fun route. Some people get confused about what to do high on the arete, so for them it's less fun.
Perhaps easier (and more fun?) if do not always climb close to the bolt line.
