Description 

Start on the E/NE corner in a squeeze between Moot Point and the adjacent rock (Tiki). Gain a ledge on Tiki and step back over onto the north aspect of Moot Point. Follow the crack to the horizontal ledge/crack, step up, and fire the final crack almost to the top-- but not quite. Make a few face moves to the summit.

Location 

You'll know it when you see it. Hook clockwise around the spire until you can't anymore. Start in the wide space.

Protection 

A BD or WC #6 might fit the wide bit down low; luckily, after the first ledge placements are available, although gear is small to medium-small (small nuts were helpful) with maybe a medium piece or two 2/3 of the way up.

When we climbed this on 21-Jul-13, there was a bit of wide webbing around the pinnacle, but no ring or biner (ie., no anchors at top). Point is, bring some webbing as the loop that was up there may be in crappy condition or gone when you climb the route.
