Apologies to those primates who are less than 5'9" tall. There is a height dependent crux at the second bolt. This being said, there are intermediate moves (perhaps harder than the rating) to reach that critical finger edge. The rest of the climb is stiff with good movement. Small edges and big throws get you to the left shoulder of Swift Spire where you can place more gear and start the traverse right to the anchor.


Head down the fixed line from the edge but just to the last "U" bolt. Here you leave the rope and head across the talus SW a short distance to a small rise. Take the easy line down and SW before cutting back to the wall and the obvious spire. Edge to spire about 3 min.s


Three bolts, a BD .3 and #2 gets you to the chains.

A fun little route to the top of a cool mini-tower. As Roy mentions, it's one of those lines with a definite height dependent crux, but has fun moves and is worth a spin. Thanks again for graciously sharing your playground with me Roy! Aug 25, 2015
