Fairly 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.


This is the subtle dyke branching off from Intl. Chimney. Single 60m gets you down the first rappel from the top. Then double rope rap from the rap anchors on pitch two.

Great face climb with non-trivial climbing above bolts, get on it! Thanks Chris. 5.11 Jun 26, 2017
