Description 

Fun, exposed scramble that gets you to the top of a spire just in time for sunrise/sunset.

Directions: Find your way to the south saddle of Falcon's Nest by hiking around the west side of the formation and clambering 4th-class over the limestone band. This sculpted saddle is a pretty vortexy spot, alright. Then simply pick your path up the wandery featured slab.

Rappel: 60-foot rappel from two-bolt cordalette anchor back to saddle.

Location 

Starts at the south saddle of Falcon's Nest and climbs the short south ridge direct to the top.

Protection 

Gear is sparse, but that's okay because its more of a scramble than a climb. Take what you can get, I guess.
