This is perhaps one of the better and cleaner lines of the grade on the spire. A funky roof start, techy middle section, and a powerful arete gives way to an excellent juggy finish.

Start on Vision Quest by climbing the corner through the awkward roof to get established onto the face above. Instead of moving left toward the left arete, move up past a bolt (this is bolt one of an older unknown route that was replaced). From here, move up and slightly right on small edges to another bolt, then step right to the other arete. Make a powerful lieback move up the left side (of the arete) to an excellent out-of-sight jug. Finish on big holds.


Rightmost route on the south face.


2 bolts and very light rack -- hand size cam and medium stopper.
