Description:

Located at the far left side of NT Wall before you get to the "break" in the wall with the trees and rocks at the base. An older route in need of a name. A run in with a LARGE, HAIRY and SPIKE covered bug near the top in the crack seemed like a good namesake. Follow bolts up and slightly left. Near the top, in a shallow corner, follow a crack and blocky rock up to the anchor.
