  • Description 

    Too bad the crux jamming isn't longer, as it is perfect hands for a short while. It would get more stars if it were more sustained.

    Start off on the ledge 10' up as for harebell, but head right into the OW corner, and climb to the top of that for a few meters. Proceed upward into good gear and good jams through a steep section (wide gold to tight blue Camalots, and then move up to the top of the spire via its right shoulder, then crossing to the chains above harebell. This is a good route that required minimal cleaning and is a reasonable warm-up for Harebell.


    It is about 10' right of Harebell on the West Face of Cenotaph Spire.


    Take a single run of cams or maybe doubles in the hand sizes if you love to sew it up. Anchor up top off of the chains on Harebell.

    Did this climb this evening. It is pretty darn dirty. Lots of mouse poop and stuff in the crack. That being said, it wasn't terrible. There is a great view from the top! Could be a fun when it cleans up. Good jams at the top, but it's short.
