This route has some excellent thin face climbing on the first half of the route. A green Alien can be placed between the first and second bolt. At a small ledge after the fifth bolt, move left and finish in a jam crack. If you move right, expect some exciting arete slapping to get back on route.


Dierection is found on the west side of the spire. The route starts up a gully about 50ft on top of some large blocks.


7 bolts and a green Alien between bolt 1 & 2.

If it were 100+ feet, this could be a 4-star route, but it isn't. As it is, it's the best 50' of climbing on the crag, with great rock, well-placed clips, a variety of good moves, and a fun summit.
