A nice exposed and aesthetic line that climbs up a fallen spire leaning against Spire Nine! Most of the route is low angle and fairly easy until the tip of the fallen spire is reached. Pull the crux on steeper and lesser quality rock right below the summit. There are several button heads throughout the route but bring a light rack to supplement.


Find the leaning spire on Spire Nine's S face. Scramble out of the 8/9 gully to gain the start of the route. First couple bolts should be visible from the base. 70m rope gets you back to the top of the 8/9 gully.


7? bolts
single rack small-medium
3 buttonhead anchor on top.
