Description

Short moderate spire with some good parts and an exciting topout.

To find the base of the route, walk through the notch on the east side of the spire and traverse a vegetated ledge until a stack of blocks below the obvious flake/chimney system.

Pitch 1: Varied crack system, with a bit of everything. Climb short twin cracks into the flake system, scamper through the dusty chimney (no pro, but virtually impossible to fall out) to a nice ledge. Ascend the short, beautiful thin-hands splitter (crux) to another ledge, then romp up a fun ramp to the two-bolt belay. (5.8, 100 feet)

Pitch 2: Scramble clockwise for a ways, scamper up an easy ramp and finally pull the juggy roof. (5.8, 60 feet)

Rappel the route with one 60m rope.

Location

See area page for approach directions. This route starts in the middle of the south face. Locate the obvious flake/chimney system.
