Comments: Climbed this again yesterday. More technical than most at this grade in the gunks but manageable and felt 5.10a. As others have said, get good gear in the last big horizontal (#3/#2 helpful) before the upper section.

Comments: If you are confident in the grade, I strongly recommend doing the 5.7+ version of pitch 1. A big cam will make it pg, or some thoughtful extending and climbing makes it pg-13.

The new rappel on No Glow is quite close to the top of the climb. Walk climbers left about 30ft.

Comments: The slings at the top of Pitch 3 are gone, and the tat on pitch 2 looks questionable.

Comments: worst climb on the spires, easily the worst climb we did while we were in Potrero. Bolts are poorly placed, line is awkward, and climbing is uninspiring. There is no reason to do this climb.

Comments: Pitches can all be linked, but to link the last two pitches you have to stop at the sub anchor, not the summit anchor.

Comments: a 60 meter rope WILL NOT make it to the ground. It might make it to the uphill section on the right of the wave, but I wouldn't risk it.

Comments: Really wonderful short multipitch. Good belay stations and three distinctly different pitches.

Comments: Loose block creates a new crux. Super fun roof pulls anyway. Does anyone know why there is a second set of rap rings half way up?
