Description [Suggest Change]

Short-but-sweet spire route with a fun mix of climbing styles.

Route: Squirm up the big flared offwidth to the notch. Step across the gap and climb the featured face past 3 bolts. Jam a short fist crack to gain the two-bolt anchor below the summit blocks.

The summit scramble has a couple low-5th moves.
