This small spire has 3 good bolted routes in the 5.10 to 5.12 range. Two of them are Gene Larson routes.

Getting There 

Follow the Trail to the North of the Boulders directly across the road from the Needles Eye. Go up the hill for about 300 yards and you should find the spire in the trees to the west of Gnomon.
