Description [Suggest Change]
One of the best 5.10s in the Park, a true overlooked classic. The crux comes early passing a bolt, though it is sustained throughout following a steep finger/hand crack. Many locals "favorite 5.10" in the Spires. On an ecological note Tagua is imitation ivory made from the seeds of the Tagua Palm tree found in the Pacific coasts of the tropical regions between Colombia and Ecuador.
Location [Suggest Change]
Follow 4/5 gully to the top, pass the Eyetooth, look for a narrow corridor with a chock stone, go underneath the chock stone, look for a bolt about 10 feet up. The route is located on the northeastern aspect of the formation.
Protection [Suggest Change]
