Spliff Spire  Matt following.  About to enter the 5.8 chimney on pitch 4 of Satellite Spire. The route takes the left OW crack seen above.  The 3 lead bolts and two anchor bolts on pitch 4 are gone. You now either man up with a #6 or bring a #4 big bro. Either way you link 4 and 5 to the summit.  The x's show the second rappel anchors. The lower '0' shows some fixed nuts for the final rappel.  The dashed line shows the route up to pitch 2.  Matt following pitch 1.
