Description [Suggest Change]

The following description is the one reported by the FA party. Longer ropes will make short work of this route.

Pitch 1: Start just right of the prow of the ridge, and climb a long pitch via faces and cracks up to the right to reach a large ledge.

Pitch 2: step right and climb cracks and a chimney for another long pitch to a belay right on the arete of the ridge.

Pitch 3: climb up the face and ridge (easy 5th), with some exposure to the left, for about 100'.

Pitch 4: continue up a short corner to a ridge, and follow it for 2 easy long pitches to the summit.

Descent: climb down to a small notch to the east, from where a 150' rap reaches a gully. Scramble UP this gully to a point where you can cross the ridge to the right. This is the ridge connecting the spire with the massif. Descend the scree gully back to the lake.
