Ascends the long arcing arete left of 'The Ramshackler'.

1) 5.9- 100
Start the same as Ramshackler; up the easiest path above a pile of boulders. Head left to arete on the ramp below roof. Then straight up into the flared chimney/OW. Protection is hard to find before gaining the OW. Build anchor at top of wide crack (semi-hanging belay) unless you can find a better spot.

2) 5.8+ 100'
Continue up rib through a slab crux protected by thin gear. Then becomes lower angle to the top. Enjoy the exposure! Build anchor. Rap station is in notch below summit.


Route climbs the furthest E point of the Mystery Spires. Approach from the N on hiker's trail. Single 80m rope barely makes the rap to the ground.


Gear up to BD #4, Nuts/RPs
No bolts
Two bolt rap station with chain.
