4 out of 5 stars Excellent route

but care should be taken to avoid having cams getting pushed back into the crack by the rope. I had an old school #5 in the wide crux section that fell out when I tried to move. Bring a Bro if you don't feel confident running out the wide a bit.

5 out of 5 stars Classic.

This is the best trad line i've done to date. I got by just fine with a BD #3 Camalot as my largest piece. Use the pockets under the roof or bring a big piece for the roof itself.

4 out of 5 stars One of my favorites

Fan-friggin-tastic route!

Bomber hand jams to a delicate traverse to an off-width. The variation makes Arachnid very enjoyable and well worth the hike up to Tower. Bring a big cam (old #5) or a Big Bro (Green #3, I think) to protect the wide section and you'll be fine.

5 out of 5 stars 5.awesome

Sweet climb. Looks more intimidating than it is. Can't wait till i am cool enough (and own enough cams) to lead this.
