Make an awkward move up, after clipping the first bolt, and, clip the second bolt making sure the belayer is paying attention, and the lead climber is solid for the clip. A spot from the ground may be prudent.

Interesting but short climbing up the shady aspect of the spire.


Behind the Pinnacle (approach by scrambling up and around on the north side) at the notch between the Pinnacle and the main wall. On this backside of the Pinnacle, just to the right of the left-side arete, note a bolt placement or two up the steep face (at the shallow crack weakness on the backside of the spire). Rappel from fixed anchor atop spire to get down (west side).


4 lead bolts.

Some supplementary pro may be availble past the first two bolts, but, optional for the confident folks at the grade.
