Route Summary | Ascent Notes (3)
Cams .4-4" and optional large piece (7-12") if you skip clipping the bolts
Fun, Short, Historic climb. Start any way you choose, and funnel your way into the chimney. Plenty of small knobs for face holds if chimneying isn't your thing (yet).
Gear progressively gets larger as you go up and when it reaches the 7-12" range you can VERY EASILY reach two bolts from Candyass. (you are almost climbing over them)
Before you clip them, just remember Harding didn't use the bolts or any large gear.
lower off Candyland anchors or set top rope on any of the other routes

For whatever reason this website won't let me add a route for Middle Spire. The route that's missing is the Unnamed 5.6 (SuperTopo guide) that can be used to get up to Harding's Other Chimney. This climb ascends the double cracks in the open book below the chimney. Use the bolts left of chimney for to anchor/rappel.
