Climb towards the obvious 'buttonhole', a thin slit in the rock formation near the top of the spire. The actual summit is over to the left, or climb through the buttonhole and go to the top of that portion. Summit register is missing.


See the description for the rock formation on how to get to the base of this climb. The climb starts on the Granddaddy side of the Buttonhole formation.


Nuts, cams, and horns to sling for a rappel. Or, downclimb and backclean just as the Conns did. No bolts on top.
