Description

Climb up easy chimney to cracks on the center of the east face of this spire, to steeper bulge where the pro is slightly wanting and the rock a little suspect. Climb through this with good footwork to better cracks and to the summit, staying on this pleasant East face (afternoon shade).
There is a summit register in a spice bottle on top with F.A. info and some signatures. Maybe take a few 4" sheets of paper to add room for more signatures.

Location

On the East face of the Grace Note Spire- this is the obvious route that starts wide and goes to hands-size.

Protection

A standard rack to 3.5" with some long slings for the pro at the back of the chimney.

The Conn Route is actually about 30 feet right of this chimney system and moves to the west side at the saddle between Grace Note and Sharp. Highly recommended with some fun moves. Jul 21, 2007

This isn't actually the route the Conns took, but what the heck, its a good route in its own right. May 5, 2007
