Description

Razorback is a fitting name for this blade-like peak. Just north of Wildcat, to the north, only the spire lies between Razorback and the Low Horns. The Ingraham guide describes an extremely sharp west ridge that spirals down in a graceful spiral from the summit that is only inches wide for 60 feet near the summit.
Placement of bolts/fixed anchors is prohibited in Wilderness Study Areas Details

Getting There

Approach the west ridge and northwest face from the gully between Razorback and the Spire. Approach the southeast routes by descending from the summit of Wildcat. From the summit of Wildcat, scramble west for a short distance then north down easy ramps to the small col between Wildcat and Razorback. The gully descending west from this col is likely a dangerously loose rubble pile and is not recommended without first hand knowledge of the conditions (this is based on observations from above, which have not been explored by me personally).

Rappelling to the north works well. A 50m rappel from the Summit hits a small ledge with a single bolt. Not an old 1/4" rusty thing, but a newer expansion bolt in good shape and with a quick link already on it. from this bolt another 20m rappel hits the saddle between Razorback and the Spire.
