Description 

Follow the crack of Spider Wand for about 20 Ft. Traverse across the left facing corner to reach the hand crack on the right side of the arete. Climb the hand crack to the top. The traverse has some fun moves and the hand crack is a cruiser. If your are going to choose between Spider Wand and Wham Bam, Spider Wand has cooler moves pulling around the roof. This stays shady in the summer until about 1PM.

Location 

Obvious inside corner on the Burning buttress, 30 Ft. right of Happy Hands, 20 Ft. Left of Burning Calves.

Protection 

Heavy on the 3.5-2" range of cams. A smaller cam is nice for the traverse from Spider Wand to the main crack of this climb. Bolted anchor.
