climb from noptch between Tisha Spire up low angle varied cracks (5.4) to ledge w/ big tree. Then splitter corner up to roof, traverse L (crux) to anchors, continue up unprotected easy slabs to summit.
Southeast of Acropolis, easiest approach from Midgely Bridgely to Jordan trail to north end of Steamboat slickrock slabs.
Gear to #4camalot

Scott Baxter and I did the first ascent of this route back in 1977 or 1978.
Hope this helps - Gordon Douglass

Just did this route today and thought it was great! One note however is that on the easy slabs above the anchor there is a 500+lbs block resting on a teeter totter. We debated trundling it, but since my dog was hanging out at the bottom decided that would be a bad idea. Plus didn't know how far down the hill it would roll. Instead we reinforced it with a bunch of rocks to hopefully stabilize it for future parties. I would advise future parties to climb around it to the right... Super fun approach and climb though!
