Description

Classic, without any doubt! This line follows the flared seam that cuts the ENE aspect of Spire Two, facing Station 13. Very clean, plumb line through a few bulges. Some tricky moves and tricky gear comes at the first bulge, followed by a rest right below the crux. Find a bomber RP placement then fire the very desperate crux at second bulge. Take crack to it's end and clip bolt out left. You will be kept on your toes getting to the next bolt and pulling the mantle above.

Location

Located immediately below the peak of the 2/3 gully, to the N. On the tall buttress split by a flaring seam. 80m rope required!

Protection

Single rack; purple C3 to #3
Nuts, RPs

Bring a #5 for a solid placement in the flare through the first bulge, just try not to bump it when you're pulling the first crux! High quality sport climbing, without the bolts...such a good route! Aug 6, 2015
