Homage to the Spider, III, 5.10a

To the Summit- 500’/5th Class/ Continue to the other end of this huge natural alley way. Chimney your way up at the narrower section (there is no pro, thus we soloed this section) until you can comfortably traverse to ledges on its left side. Scramble on up to a large flat area beneath the summit ridge. I changed shoes here. You have four more 5th class sections that we soloed. The first ramps up left. The 2nd is steeper and has an obvious line. Continue on past a notch and gully, staying left as you gain a 3rd steeper section. The 4th steep section is perhaps the most difficult, maybe 5.7 for just a short while. Stem up to the top of this and you will be able to see the summit cairn. There is an iron cross and summit register.
