Up the left side of the spire, avoiding the arete.

This route goes up the East face of the Honey Comb spire on cobles and shallow pockets. Avoid Honey Crack to the right and stay to the right of the left edge of the spire. The bottom is easy-going up cobbles, etc. At the top (crux) where the face narrows between the crack and arete, avoid the temptation to use the crack and make a few long reaches for a shallow pocket, then there is a nice jug on the top to finish. Many of these holds on the upper part are sharp!


There is one bolt on top of the spire that can be used for a TR along with gear in the main wall (mid sized cam works)

Correction: this route goes LEFT of Honey Crack (not right) and stays right of the edge.
