My 5 piece anchor amungst the rubble that is the top of the spire. It was difficult to find a good anchor due to the crappy rock, but even more significant was the danger of the rope running over the loose rock on the ground and knocking chunks over the edge onto the climber below. This anchor worked out very well though, it is directly at the top of the pitch, about 20 feet back.

Yeah, people have only been climbing these things for about 50 years on hexes and stoppers. If you can get yourself up there, you'll probably work it out. Jul 26, 2014
