Description [Edit]

To start this climb, there are two options; "walk the plank", following the base of the maple tree to the edge of the arête. Step up onto the first ledge and clip the first bolt. OR work up the arête from the ground below the tree and squeeze between the rock and tree, ending up on the large ledge.

From the first ledge, reach up to the next ledge and pull the crux of the climb trying your best to mantle up. Once on the second ledge, follow nice holds on bullet proof rock, sticking to the arête and ending at a two bolt anchor.

Location [Edit]

On the east face of The Spire. This route is on the very south side of the east face. The route starts at the base of the maple tree.

Protection [Edit]

6 bolts and two bolt anchor with rap rings.
