Exciting Beginning. Face climb difficult, steep, committing, unprotected rock for about 10 feet to a crack where you place your first piece. Continue up a weird thin seam that is much harder than it looks, protected by C3s. Continue up easy climbing to the base of a pair of cracks. Stem and grunt up the left offwidth - it is very weird and insecure but fun!


When you look at the spire from the approach gully, the upper twin cracks are on the right corner. The starting face moves are right of this, actually on the right side of the spire when viewed from the gully, up a very densely vegetated gully with lots of moss and ferns.


All gear protection. Single rack, extra small stuff (C3s), extra big stuff (5s and 4s).

Bolt anchor at top which currently has some cord and a couple non lockers.
