DescriptionP1: 5.9 or 5.10, 45'. Start on the North face from the notch. The crux of this spire is the very bottom. Either take a nasty 5.9 squeeze chimney boulder problem with poor pro or a stout 5.10 boulder problem to the left with good pro. Either way, top out and climb low angle chossy rock up and left to a spooky pillar at the limestone band. The leader on the FA pulled a microwave sized block onto himself here so be careful. Continue around on a nice ledge to the SE face and belay off gear at the base of a good looking crack.
P2: 5.9, 45'. Climb the nice thin hands to hand crack for 30, clip a bolt and face climb to the summit. Belay off rap anchors.
Summit is a cool island in the sky of desert flora.
