It is a pretty fun little spire that splits at the top into two. We started on the south east side and followed a crack system up and left into a slanted off width between the two summits. A standard rack with doubles of number three and a single number four worked great. There are bolted anchors on the taller of the two summits. 2 pitches will get you from the limestone band to the top. A single 60m rope will get you down to the limestone band. You can then sling shrubs or simul-rap off of one of the edges on the south east side of the band to get down.
