Sweet spire!!! I think these guys knew Aaron Cost...
Climb the Arete on the uphill side.
From the Spires parking lot, it's, uh, well right there.
Few small pieces and a fixed peg.

This route was definitely done November 4, 1971 by Paul Piana, but probably was climbed considerably earlier than that by Bob Kamps and Mark Powell.
I'm not sure what makes this the "Regular Route;" the first route on the spire was climbed by Royal and Liz Robbins in 1964 and seems to coincide with "Little Cat Feet," except of course Royal climbed it without any bolts.
The summit was obtained by tyrolean traverse in 1954 by Ray Sandberg and Walt Bailey. The name was, of course, meant to be humorous.
