Climb a short 5.9 lieback. Continue up a beautiful knobby face with tied off knobs and sparse gear placements. Continue up the wide crack of "Ginger Bread".
Can be done in one or two pitches.


Tie-off slings, pro to 4".

Very good line, as with most spires climbs, consider taking a few more runners...

I would have found some pretty small gear helpful too.

Really fun climb. I agree - bring small gear. I placed a red, purple, and green Black Diamond C3 (along with bigger stuff in the beginning and at the end). Although fairly well protected throughout, you do have to commit to the stiff 5.9 crux with the last good gear placement a couple feet below you.

I agree with the comments here- the SuperTopo recommends a double rack and no nuts. I'd either bring nuts or bring a few extra small cams (like #1 mastercam or smaller) to place in the thin crack on P1. Otherwise it might get a little runout when you traverse onto knobs. A fun route in any case and the crux is low and well protected!
