Route Summary | Ascent Notes (3)
Standard rack, I enjoy having a number 4 cam on the 3rd pitch
Fabulous climb. I was very intimidated by this feature as it is huge and steep. But i found that the climbing was very good and for the most part straight forward. You can see the first 5 pitches from the ground. Every type of climbing is on this spire, from face to offwidth. There are a couple of sections that are run out, but the climbing is easy. The 5th pitch is definatly the crux with about 80 ft of sustained finger crack. This is also where the exposure gets good. The summit is not to be missed, with an exposed, barely 5th class traverse aross the top.
There are anchors on the right hand side as you look towards the back. It's down two exiting full length pitches, back to the front side, then two more to the ground. The anchors are bomber.
