Crux is off the ground and pretty sustained until the 3rd bolt. Climbing then eases off until you gain a good ledge, then one more tricky 5.10- move and easy climbing to the top. Pretty good sporto route, the second good one I've done on lower spire.

This is an excellent sport route with a cool summit. What more could you want? One powerful move down low guards a couple more techy moves, then a super fun jug haul to the top. Get on this thing!
