Located on the upper rock of the lower tier, this is the furthest right climb. It has a very apparent chimney on the top 10 feet of the climb.
An interesting balance move makes this a worthwhile climb. The crux is just below the second bolt, and has potential for groundfall from 15 feet off the deck. Beware of glass in the base of the chimney above the second bolt.
4 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. You could also set up a top rope with minimal difficult by walking around the back of the spire to the top.
