Description 

A tasty dessert at the end of the day (or warm-up) that gets you to a cool little summit with a great view. The crux is steep pulling on positive holds at the start (very well protected with bolts). After the 4th or 5th bolt the angle and difficulty ease up, and bolts become more spaced.

Be careful with a 60m rope on this route! Ours made the rappel with about 1 foot to spare.

If you know the name, FA, or grade of this route, post a comment and I will update this page. Don't trust my rating.

Location 

The south face of the spire, this route faces Be All End All.

Protection 

This is essentially a sport route (8-10 bolts?), but most will want a piece between the last bolt and anchor. Bomber medium nut or small cams could work.

I believe the FA is Tanya Bok & Scott Ayers. You can confirm by contacting her at cochiseclimbing.com. My notes indicate 5.9 mixed but I have a vague recollection of there being two routes on this formation.

Probably the same route, I thought the start was pretty stout for a .9, but maybe I was just tired from climbing all day (whodda thunk?). This route is in such a convenient location, I'm sure many others have done it, so hopefully others will post their opinion of the grade.

Tanya confirmed the FA, and they have not yet named it.
