Climb: Phantom Spires

Things I climbed

Over Easy – 5.7 – Yep. Over and Easy. It was wise to start with something that got my head in to tying knobs with slings for pro.

Slowdancer – 5.9 – Cool crimpy start followed by something positive every time you need it.

Shark’s Tooth Arete – 5.10 – Defined crux and grounder potential. Fortunately they don’t happen in that order. If this climb were 2-3x as tall it would be a classic.

Gingerbread – 5.7 – A fair amount of suspect rock in the first 50 feet, but recommended overall. Definitely not a beginner .7 lead as the protection is not always obvious.
