ronnie bob just gaining the crack.


This is a variation for the second pitch of Spire Four. Follow the normal start of second pitch but continue to the face of the spire that has the anchors. (Start under the depression, climb up to depression then traverse right to gain the crack; follow the crack to the to top.) Crack had areas that crumbled, as is consistent with the top of the Spire Four anchors. It may be considered a PG13- it is roughly 20ft before the climber is able to place gear once the route veers to the right.


Second pitch of Spire Four.


.4 through a #2

FYI this is a trad route- not sport as the top descriptor says
