Description 

This is at S1 on the aerial photo. We went pretty much went straight up the slab at the bottom (we placed two bolts), then into a thin crack which became harder, then easier higher up.

There was an old anchor on top, likely for the large chimney / crack to the right of our route.

Location 

Steep east face of large spire.

Protection 

Two bolts then trad gear
