Very pleased with how this route turned out! Wander up NE face finding good gear and pulling well protected cruxes on excellent rock. Start the same as Gill Route from the talus perch. Place a piece right away then move out on to the face. Find your way to horizontal and prepare for the crux. Another smaller crux is near the top.


NE aspect of spire. 70m or double rope rap.


Single rack to BD#2 & one #4 or #5
5 Bolts
Bolted anchor

Direct start can be obtained by starting down low at the North West toe of the formation. Look for the wide parallel crack at the start. Be aware of the giant loose block at the top of the wide crack on the right. It probably wont tip off, but it does wobble a little! A few hand size pieces protect the bottom well and creates a really nice 45 meter pitch!
