Description 

Maybe someone has done this finish also but,
I had an accidental lost moment in the spires w/ peter lev at the
2nd pitch, I couldn't remember which way off the belay so I split the difference, started up left side of semi tall block on right side of the belay ledge and went between the two wider cracks,right one being gods own drunk second pitch crack. but this route is on the face.
Crux was going to a horn after a steep section above the belay. solid holds, all there, jug flake finish exciting but surely not 5.10

Location 

An option off belay ledge after first pitch

Protection 

slings for natural horns
sparse to no gear, I recall small nuts, small cams, and slings
anchors on top,
