DescriptionFairly well protected bolt line up the long West face of Spire Three. Follows the faint 'S'-ing dyke of crystals all the way to the top. Thrilling crux.
Pitch 1; 5.6 90', Start up the 'International Chimney', climb through crux and make belay at a ledge about half way up this climb.
Pitch 2; 5.11- 140', From ledge, continue 15' up 'chimney' to small roof on the left. Stem and traverse out left towards bolt line. After crux, you could stop at rappel anchors to make a third pitch (small stance). Medium sized gear needed for horizontal up higher.
