DescriptionApproach from the San Rafael campground as for Window Blind Peak. Route find through first big cliffband and then traverse right (west) below Mother Hubbard's Shoe to the far west end of the formation to West Point Spire.
P1. The route begins up the centre of the SW face up a thin crack to two pro bolts, then move left on a ledge to a wider crack that leads to a good ledge and double bolt belay. 100' C1 5.8 (this pitch should now go all free as any loose rock has been removed)
P2. Climb the corner 5.5 passing a large block on your right, and go over the top of block to the base of summit block and double anchors. From here a couple of moves to nice summit. 50' 5.7
Summit register in cairn. Rappel the route.
