Homage to the Spider, III, 5.10a
3rd Pitch- 60m- 5.10a/ We went off route here, but did so by getting sucked up via an old existing piton. Take on the face to the left and climb up easy ground to the base of a corner. If you are going to do the one we did, you will see a piton en-route to the base of a quite loose, but protectable corner above a ledge. We took the corner, with delicate rock and traversed slightly right onto a narrow ledge with a good horizontal crack in which to set up a belay. Staying from the loose section to the far left is the variation that gives this route a 5.10a grade. The original accentors went left over easier ground through this section.
