snaggletooth spire

Description 

P1: 5.8, 80'. Climb the obvious South face crack/chimney to the cave about halfway up the spire. Belay on two bolts. This cave tunnels all the way through the spire!

P2: 5.9, 70'. Wild!!! Climb out the roof through chockstones then into a hand crack on the vertical face above. Scramble to the summit.

Rap - Rap the route. I cannot remember what I left to rap with so bring some tat and a few leaver biners.

Location 

This spire is two formations to the left of Wild Woman (as seen from the trail). The formation in between is not a spire. From the trail watch for a low ridge that climbs up towards the spires. Bushwhack up to this ridge and continue up to the spires. At the top, head left over to Snaggletooth. Also see the overview photo on the Secret Canyon page

Protection 

Doubles from thin fingers to #3 Camalots.
Bolted anchors.
