Spiderland – 5.12d

18m / 59ft, 7 bolts
FA: davidbruneau - 2019-11-29


In between "The Warden's Cavalry" and "White Squall". Juggy climbing to the roof, then boulder to the chains. A recent hold break at the crux has apparently not changed the difficulty (still 12d/13a). South facing, so a good cold weather climb.

Recent Sendage:

  • 5.12d
    5.10+ climbing to a nice, but reachy V5.
  • 5.12d
    3rd try. Fun climbing however inconsistent. 5.11- climbing to a v5 boulder. There was a major break at the crux recently but I never actually tried it pre-break. A cool test piece for those looking to try a boulder problem after pumpy, easy climbing.
  • 5.13a
    Avoided using the crimp under the roof called for some reachy moves and fun crosses, but likely easier than the proposed grade. 4 tries
  • 5.13a
    The crux was keeping hands warm in sub zero temperatures. Nice addition to RW

    Took 5 days, maybe due to cold conditions and a small knee injury. New beta over roof is easier.
