DescriptionThere is a cairn @ the start.
Head out right for 30? feet to gain a short, left-facing dihedral. Head up towards roof, move right around this feature, and go up right to belay. Off the belay, head left up into short, right-facing dihedral with a knifeblade pin pounded into seam. Run it out up the arete, and belay before big, obvious crack. Head up the crack, and at the upper roof, where it turns to #5 or #6 BD, head left on fa ace traverse. Do tricky moves to gain easy ground, and go up into the notch of the spire. Continue up easy ground to the summit.
LocationTo descend head to back of spire, do one single rope rap into gully that houses the Hidden Spire. Scramble back to base.
This would be a good day to climb this spire and then continue onto Hidden Spire. Then if you still have time, add in the Thrill Tower to finish off the day with 3 summits and 8 pitches!
