Spiny Norman

Has anyone done, or know someone who has done Spiny Norman? I am trying to determine if the route I had added at Emerald City is actually Spiny Norman.

What I had added I called Toto's Escape. The description in the book and online guide both seem sufficiently vague and there are a few other grungy cracks between the ledge routes and Friable that add even more confusion. There's a picture for Toto's Escape in the online guide book for reference.

Haven't done it but I always thought that crack in the photo was Spiny Norman... but then again it might not be...

I always thought that was Spiny Norman too. It seems like it would be the most attractive crack in the area to those crusty old traddies that couldn't follow the bolts to the top of the wall.

Maybe rjackson can get in contact with Sco Bro who seems to have done it (made a comment on Spiny Norman, at least). But I think they're one in the same. Maybe a slight update to the description for Spiny Norman is in order as well to decrease confusion for the next victim(s).

Dustin - I think Mr. cromper has done Friable. I'm just not into that sketchy rock on the traverse left...

I have always thought the picture in Toto was Spiny Norman. I might have tried it but could never find the start. I was looking from the ground, left of the ledge.

I think I did Friable one day if it is that huge layback rounded flake looking crack to a roof. I was not willing to to go left and top it out from there so I down climbed the entire thing. It is kind of confusing what is what.
