Follow a low angle left facing corner through a ackward wide section. The last 30ft of the climb has an enjoyable lieback section.
Walk off to the left on 4th class ledges...
The first LF coner to the right of the Regular Route

feels a little insecure half way up left facing corner. maybe not the best first lead for someone.

I agree with splitclimber. I also found half way up surprisingly insecure for a 5.5. Getting around the left facing bulge was challenging.

I found the corner secure enough. For me, getting around the bulge at the start gave me problems for a 5.5 climb. You can continue up into the chimney above (maybe a 5.8 move getting into the chimney then 5.0 after that) to summit Middle Spire.

Fun climb, sustained and well protected, but much harder than Knapsack Crack 5.5 and harder than Deception 5.6 at Lover's Leap. Felt like 5.7 to me.
