Pitch 1 (optional): From the start of the conn route continue walking around the corner until you reach a low angled ramp. Scramble up and around the south side of the spire til you reach a good belay ledge. Climb a 12 foot chimney towards the tree on the upper level. Set a trad anchor for belayer for the second pitch.

Pitch 2: From the south facing belay ledge, climb the southwest face bolt line towards the horizontal and continue up the fin to the summit. Be aware of a loose flake towards the top. Climb light.


When passing the Mt. Rushmore profile pull off its that upper face section on the spire. South west facing.
