Description:

Prominent spire on the South side of Moose's Butte. Climb directly south of the spire up a loose face/gully to a nice belay below a large tree. Then up nice hands thru the limestone band and a short grovel. Then a diagonal slabby OW to the notch (cool belay). Finally chimney span above then climb face past a bolt and and a piton to sweet summit!

Descent Options:

rap 70 to notch, then rap twice (dbl ropes) down the west side of the spire.

5 out of 5 stars rarely done classic!

prominent pillar, good cimbing; this should get done more often; although I'm glad Mike lead the last pitch!
