Unknown 10+ (beige hangers) aka Spooked aka Firestarter?
|755 page views|
This is currently the 6th bolted line from the left on this buttress and starts with beige hangers. It joins Unknown 9+ (black hangers) aka Fire and Rain at about 1/2 height and follows Whodathunkit above its crux.
This starts just to the right of Unknown 9+ (black hangers) aka Fire and Rain below a hanging arete. The crux is in the first 10 feet as you try to get secure on smeary feet and get into a layback on the hanging arete. There is a stray bolt up and right of the 2nd bolt which may be another variation starting from the next route to the left. Ignore that bolt for this variation. Move up past 4 more bolts and traverse left into Whodathunkit and Unknown 9+ (black hangers) aka Fire and Rain. Continue up to a 2 bolt anchor with Mussy hooks.
Make sure to clean off your shoes before you start this route.
Others have provided a name, Spooked. This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash.
Per Travis Drake: this may retronamed "Firestarter".
This is currently the 6th bolted start (with beige hangers) from the left on this little buttress.

I really liked this route and hope more people climb it. The fist section and then one about 3/4 the way up are the hard parts, and if you mess up the first clip, your landing won't feel good on your ankles. It is a fun route, but I hope your shoes are sticky, cause there is a lot of angled feet/ smearing.

I think this route is called "Firestarter" and not "Spooked."
