Strenuous and technical, but very good climbing. Climb side-pull flakes and crimps straight up to the first bolt. Many will want either a secure spot or a stick clip for the first bolt because the landing is on slanting talus with potential to roll and fall another 50-60 feet down a chimney to the base of the south face. I usually put a single locker on the first bolt because there is solid climbing to the second bolt where a fall to the deck would be close. Continue climbing past more bolts to a two bolt anchor.

This route gets great shade in the afternoon.


East facing in the gully immediately around the corner to the climbers left of Five Tendons.


Bolts and bolted anchor at the top of the spire.
