This route is good to do once if you want something new to do that includes a nice amount of exposure. After clipping your belayer into a low bolt to the right of the route, step out left and onto the wall. The exposure starts as soon as you step onto the route. Follow the rusty bolt line straight up to a two bolt anchor with chains. Because of the rusted state of all of the bolts and chains on this route, some may prefer continuing past the chains to a higher set of chains at the top of the spire. Rappel from the top of the spire.


On the north side of Midnight Spire, to the left of the tree.


4 (rusty) bolts to chains
