Description:

Classic 3-pitch trad route going up from spire's lowest to highest point. Start on lower left face just left of large dihedral. 1st pitch: Climb obvious crack to ledge. Traverse right along wide ledge past 1 bolt to spacious belay alcove below huge dihedral. 2nd pitch: Climb fun dihedral to belay ledge at notch. 3rd pitch: Traverse right gaining nice crack angling up and right. Then take crack going straight up to summit via short east finish scramble. Bolt anchor on top / rap northeast.

5 out of 5 stars Fun

Super fun route, we scrambled up the hill from the east (looking for the Jacuzzis...no water big surprise) so we accidently skipped the first pitch, but the second two were great. There were in my opinion two 5.8 moves on the second pitch, but the gear is good. Fortunatly didnt see and rattlers, but its really helpful to find the trail.
