Homage to the Spider, III, 5.10a
2nd Pitch- 55m- 5.9/ Although the 2nd pitch looks easier from the belay stance, in reality it throws everything but the kitchen sink at you, at times engulfing you into a dirty and wet section of the corner searching for gear placements and at times spitting you out to the face. All and all, another fine pitch that protects fairly well via a slung chock stone and medium to large gear. You have to pull through a bulge/overhang about ¾’s of the way up, so make sure to use plenty of runners on this pitch to avoid rope drag. At the end angle out right on run out, but easy ground, to a slung (2008) pinnacle.
