BETA PHOTO: Topo of Where the Green fern Grows


Start to the right of the shallow corner, working to the top of the first ledge, seeing the famous “Green Fern” on your way.

Find good holds in the corner proper that lead to the top of the corner itself. Once on the top of the corner, step left and out onto the steep face.

Find small holds that lead up to a great hold just below the arête edge. Use good holds that lead to a two-bolt anchor.


On the north face of The Spire. Route starts in the middle of the face below the shallow dihedral in the middle of the face.


6 bolts and 2 bolt anchor with rap rings
