Description

A new moderate multi pitch in the Spires! Easy to follow and very straight forward with rappel stations on each pitch.

P1 (5.8): Start to the right of the fallen spire at the base of the wall. Continue up and right following series of cracks and flakes to a large ledge. Bolted Chain Anchor.

P2 (5.9)****: From the belay follow the micro seam with great gear and traverse left onto the face clipping a bolt. Head straight up into the right facing dihedral until you reach yet another great ledge. Continue up anf finish through another right facing dihedral. Bolted Chain Anchor.

Decent: Rappel the route. Single 70m.

Location

Appoach: I find the easiest way to get to the base of the wall is to take the Spire 2 approach trail. Before you would enter into the 2/3 gully take a left and follow the climbers trail, traversing the base of spire 4/Eyetooth. Once It's the next biggest wall past Eyetooth on the Spire 5 mass.

The Route starts almost in the center of the North Face of Spire 5.

Protection

Nuts/Rps, C3s, Single rack up to #4.
