Description:

An easy face climb up sloping sandstone just to the left of the gulley in the middle of the Drug Wall. Bring a long sling if setting up a top-rope as the anchors are in the cut on the right side of slab. If you go straight up from the bottom Bolt to the top of Silver spoon you will runn the 5.8 Variant. This is a nice climb to take the shoes off and let your feet cool down and breath. The rock in cool and smooth.

3 out of 5 stars only for beginners

Worth skipping, only climbed it out of curiosity after a beginner friend climbed it. The anchors are weird and your rope will get stuck while bring the rope down. I think it's more like a 5.6 not 5.5 though, there's some odd parts to the route.

3 out of 5 stars Silver Spoons

A bit run out and first bolt a little hairy to get to - after that smooth climbing. Still, A good beginner lead climb.
