Description 

This is located just to the left of Kevin Spies the Line and about 50' right of the Mind Mantle Arete. There are nice moves up the blunt arete on generally good holds. I enjoyed this much more that the popular Henry Spies the Line next door. The upper arete is continuously interesting. It is more of a sport route than a trad route, but I listed it as trad because I think most people will want something more than the bolts. Definitely worth doing!

#68 in Hubbel's book, #64 in Rolofson.


Protection 

Small and medium cams plus two bolts on the face to a two bolt anchor.

This route is actually a full-on sport route. There are four bolts total. Sure the first bolt is 20 feet up, but just scramble up easy terrain on the left and move right to clip the first bolt, or take some med sized nuts and go straight up. We watched someone replace the two older cold shuts that used to be there with nice new red painted bolts--I believe he replaced the once-questionable anchor as well. much thanks to whoever that was!

regardless, a very fun, steep and pumpy route with some great moves. feels more sustained than most table one-move wonders!

Don't be scared off if you don't have gear, it's only necessary for the most faint of heart.

I was quite shocked to see the new guidebook give this a 10c rating. I thought it was soft for the original 10b rating! I did use a nut placement to protect the moves to the first bolt which is at 15 about feet.

I didn't find it very continuous, more like a two or three move wonder, but overall a fun climb. Agree with the above comments about gear: optional but not strictly necessary.
