Description

Scramble through a tree onto a ledge and peer up into a double crack system leading through some scary looking rock to the top of a spire. Climb moderate crack and face stuff being careful not to pull anything loose off. Place pro in both cracks to protect, but beware of loose stuff. We knocked as much as possible off, but will have to do more when we return. The wide section looks daunting, but protects well with a #4 and #3 placed in the back. My #4 was walked for about 10-15 ft during the FA as I only had one. I'm sure a #5 or 6 would be welcome if you've carried one in for "Throatchoker -- we didn't). Good face holds help get you through the wide crack. Continue past the first ledge to the top of the spire. Currently you can single line rap off webbing and a quick link (early Dec. '15), which I'll replace with proper LDE style anchors as soon as I return.

Location

Face the main Coop climbs (Going out of Chicken Sale, etc.) and then turn around. It's the double crack leading up an isolated spire just about 20-30 ft upslope of the Coop spire -- see overview photo.

Protection

Doubles from 0.5 to #4 camalot, though a single #4 was walked during the FA and I'm sure a #5 would be welcome for some.
