This steep slab route is on the highest spire at the Far Side. Airy exposure and breath taking views make you want to take extra rests on this Mt. St. Helena classic.

This is my favorite climb at the Far Side. The first bolt is a bit off the deck but not too difficult to reach if climbing in from the right rather than from directly below. The rest of the climb is relatively well protected. I think the crux is surmounting a little overhang after the second bolt.
