A great Scary Larry .11 in the spires that's harder than it looks! A short, but hard first pitch to an easier, but spicy second pitch!

1) 5.11+ 2 bolts, 2 pins, gear
Climb up the short crack getting good gear to a long reach clipping the first bolt. Rest up before launching into the strenuous and semi-awkward flakes. Never run-out, but sustained!
Build an anchor when the angle backs off to a ramp.

2) 5.10 PG13 1 bolt, gear (flavorful)
Head up past one low bolt on the wall to the right through the cool looking bulges. The harder climbing is well protected by gear, but expect some route finding and some moderate face climbing up higher above some questionable and spacey gear.
