5 out of 5 stars Good toute, very exposed

This route is fun and I think it's more like a 5.7 not a 5.8. It's incredibly exposed to the sun and tourists though. Vertical face with some decent belay ledges. Solid bolt placement, awessommeee view of the Rockies.

4 out of 5 stars great climb

the climb was great!! scary at parts where the sandstone was falling apart and holds coming off! other than that it was a great climb! I only led first two pitches and linked them together into one and double rope rapelled off second pitch belay.

4 out of 5 stars chimmney fun

A fun climb, but the first pitch is just juggy... love the second pitch though, get your butt in that chimmney with lots of big old holds and you just jam yourself in there. Didn't do third pitch though, short and I dislike walking off in my climbing shoes. IF YOU RAPELL OF THE SECOND PITCH MAKE SURE TO GO OFF THE BACKSIDE. YOU CANNOT RETREIEVE YOUR ROPE FROM THE FRONT SIDE! There is simply to much friction to get your rope back. You also need 2 ropes to get back to the ground, or be willing to do some easy downclimbing.

3 out of 5 stars West Point Crack

Fun, but the start of P3, after the step of faith, is probably closer to 5.9.

5 out of 5 stars Great Trad Lead! Huge Crack!

Fun Climb. 3rd Pitch not worth doing very short. Easier to rap down back of spire with single rope.
