Jane Spy is the closest route to the approach trail as it comes to the Luther Spires, sitting just left of the corner that the trail runs into. [Note, as of 9/23/2020, there is a more established trail that turns right after the bridge from the highway. Though less direct, it is far more established & leads to the same place ending at Jane Spy.]
The crux comes right as you leave the ground, and from there climbing eases to probably 5.5 through runout sections that will get you to the top anchors.
This is often a busy route, and is the best warmup on the rock.
