This climb is kind of hidden from a distance the rock looks beautiful color wise. The rock quality is good still could use alittle clean up. Look for the obvious crack splitting the NW face. It feels like a boulder problem down low. Or if you like cracks it will probably feel like any other crack... There is a one fixed pin and 3 bolts lead you up the side of the spire and to the anchor.


NW face


C3-0.75 cams, Nuts, Micros can come in handy and 4 quickdraws for the bolts
