Struggle through the weird crux down low to enjoy the finger and hands corner above. Expect a little redpoint crux, then immediately before the crack pinches off traverse left on large crystals to the top. Save some finger sizes for your last pieces.


The route doesn't actually summit any spire. But finishes right at the upper base of Sputnik. Hike the 3/4 gully and just before you would begin scrambling up the slabs keep your eyes open for the bolts on the left (west) wall. Single 70m rap.


5 bolts
Single rack
Slung horn w/ quicklink for anchor
