This route is on the south side of the spire, climbs a nice finger corner leading to a notch. A loose start leads to a stance with a bolt and the thin, funky crux. Above, sail up the beautiful finger crack to the notch and step to the anchor on the right summit. Similar but a little easier then it's north side sister.


South side of Tenacious Calculus Spire, this is a good warm up as it gets lots of sun. Look for a small dihedral below a notch. Single 70m rope rap off.


Extra Tcu's, fingers to thin hands size gear, Singles of hand sizes should be fine. One protection bolt. The summit has two bolts with quick links for rapping.
