Start at the saddle, working your way up the varied crack system on loose ledgy mudstone. Jam through a handcrack and huddle into the depths of the hollow. Climb up and out through the featured offwidth roof (crux). Continue up the fun easy groove tube to a two-bolt anchor on the left pillar with a luxurious bench seat.
Rappel 100 feet from chains.
FYI: This formation is actually a small detached pillar - not a spire, per se, but an independent summit nonetheless. On the ground-up first ascent, I led the short second pitch to the summit. It was a fun 5.8 ish face sequence with sparse pro, on the left side of the arete. I didn't leave an anchor and elected to downclimb the pitch.
