Description:

Start on the northeast corner following the crack system up right and then step left to a second crack system up and to a sloping ramp. Follow the ramp up and right to a third crack and a pin. A few moves up the crack and you are in the clear. Climb up the large bolts and chains and belay. This pitch can be a little wiggy but the pro is all there. The second pitch traverses 180 degrees around the spire to the right (facing the rock). Just follow the obvoius horrizontal. Belay at the flake. The third pitch goes up the flake/block then up left to the horrizontal crack below the summit block. Follow this 180 degrees back around to the left and the belay bolts. A quick scramble leads to the top of the summit block. Two double rope rappels will lead you back to the base at your starting point.

Followed Daniel up 1st pitch chimney, led 2nd & 3rd. 3rd pitch was easier than the 5.7 indicated in the EA Guide. Roped scramble to summit & back down.

5 out of 5 stars Spire 1

Super fun and exposed, it's like a little mountain climb. Traversing the same pinnacle twice is certainly a unique adventure. We rapped from the top chains with a set of double 60m ropes without a problem.
