Description [Edit]

Start by stepping on a small ledge and find a mix of side clings and crimpers. After clipping the first bolt, take on the crux by pulling up and small holds and high feet. Find good holds past this initial crux. Pull onto the upper face on positive holds reaching the anchor at the edge of the lip.

Location [Edit]

On the north face of The Spire. This route is towards the eastern edge of the face near a large black spot of rock.

Protection [Edit]

4 bolts and 2 bolt anchor with rap rings.

I would give this climb an extra star if the anchor was pulled, leaving just the rightmost bolt, and had it share an anchor with the route to the right. It'll clean up the wall a bit, in addition to that little extension is pretty cool. Dec 19, 2017
