Description

This route has some excellent thin face climbing on the first half of the route. A green Alien can be placed between the first and second bolt. At a small ledge after the fifth bolt, move left and finish in a jam crack. If you move right, expect some exciting arete slapping to get back on route.

Location

Dierection is found on the west side of the spire. The route starts up a gully about 50ft on top of some large blocks.

Protection

7 bolts and a green Alien between bolt 1 & 2.

If it were 100+ feet, this could be a 4-star route, but it isn't. As it is, it's the best 50' of climbing on the crag, with great rock, well-placed clips, a variety of good moves, and a fun summit. May 12, 2009
