Description:

about 2mi up Schnebly Hill rd at a hairpin turn head up Damfino(sign posted) cyn for about 15min then turn left up side drainage for another 30min or so, once below the spire thrash&scramble your way up to the base. P1 thin hands 5.10- to choss ledge w/ "bad bolt" anchors P2 Enduro OW 5.10+ chickenwing/ hand stack and lieback to some truly bad rusty button head bolts in the notch. I give this 5.11 for the enduro aspect while the moves are probably only 10+ for 150ft! P3 up choss tunnel thru to easy chimney on the west side and a great summit.

Descent Options:

rap ok but uninspiring anchors- 1 single rope rap then 2 dbl rope raps.
