Innuendo Spire at the upper left side of the Alpin...


It seems like so many route names are some form of innuendo anyway, so why not just embrace it. This spire provides several single pitch lines in a unique alpine setting on good granite.

Getting There 

Innuendo Spire sits at the upper left side of the Alpine Lite Cliffs and can be best reached by climbing Just Another Girlfriend Climb, another route on the main wall, or possibly by descending from above.

Descend the spire by scrambling down northeast from the summit to a rappel anchor at the top of Tuna Package. One 20m rappel will get you to the ground.

To get back to the base of the Alpine Lite Cliffs, follow the right of two gullies directly below the spire. When this gully cliffs out, continue down the buttress separating the left and right gullies. Towards the end, this buttress steepens and a short rappel, marked with a cairn, can be found on the right.
