Originally started by Paul Muehl and Jim Black in '79 (up to 2nd bolt). Start in crack/flake on NNE corner. Follow diagonal seams up and left from corner then straight up to the notch. Crux provides an exciting technical challenge. Tastefully protected.


Only 40' out of the parking lot. NNE corner of spire. Left of Bloody Direct. 60m rope gets down.


Gear up to 1''.
4 bolts
1 piton
Chain anchor
