This is a good route as a scramble, mostly due to its position and views. This is more of a hike than anything, but the final 30' are very cool and climb out and over onto a spire tip hanging several hundred feet above the canyon's floor.
The route is found via swinging southeast around the end of the formation and then up to the West side of the South face and down into a notch. From there the fun begins, onto and out the small twisted finger of rock over hundreds of feet, if not a thousand above the bottom of Bear Canyon. To descend, climb back the way you came.
A rope if that is your gig, but the route is sufficiently safe as a scramble in approach shoes and doesn't really take gear anyway.
