Description

Consistently overhanging, this route changes from steep hands to sporty climbing between cracks, made possible by a number of juggy holds and a few good rests. The rock is hollow in spots and shows scars from recent rockfall, so climb delicately. After the first twenty feet, the climbing changes from bomber cracks to tenuous face climbing, making protection difficult. I would recommend topping the route before leading this, even if you are used to climbing at this grade.

Location

Located on the overhanging northern side of the Shire Spire at the north end of the Luther Spires crag.

Protection

Easiest to climb by toproping after climbing Back Crack or Virginia and scrambling across the top of the spire. To traditionally protect, bring a full range of cams and nuts, potentially down to micronuts. Bring slings for extending protection on this wandery route.
Anchors do not currently have chains; safest to rappel off of the anchors for the other routes on the spire (Back Crack or Virginia).
