Enjoyable climbing up cracks and flakes, similar to Copasetic, but maybe not quite as good.

Climb a nice crack system passing a bolt mid height. Stay left after the bolt up juggy flakes until the crack pinches down, place your last gear and head straight up on good holds to the summit.


North face of unnamed spire that sits to the NE of spire 5 and kampsite.
Starts at obvious finger crack, best accessed from Harney horse trail
Could probably just make the rap with a 70m


Singles to 3, Nuts, Extra fingers to thin hands
1 bolt
2 bolt anchor w/ new webbing as of 8/15
