Description:

This starts in a steep waterchute on the left side of the formation when viewing the side opposite from Shipyard. Climb the gully to an easy but exposed ledge. Make a well-protected hard move(5.9ish) and climb past a few more bolt to the top of the spire. Classic

5 out of 5 stars stay on your toes for this one

It's a no fall climb, but beautiful and fun. Small to med cams for the top traverse. Move at the last bolt gets your attention.

3 out of 5 stars With David

Fun lead with airy finish. Used a sling to protect traverse to last bolt. Solid anchor rap.

5 out of 5 stars Classic!

Probably my favorite climb in the South Seas. The first section was extremely fun, but nothing mentioned the 30 foot runout to the next bolt up top. I wasn't up for the sketchy scramble and left a bail biner. Maybe I just missed the top anchors?

5 out of 5 stars Great climb

Very fun climb. A classic. My east coast bones aren't accustomed to belaying from the top of small spires!

0 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

Great route. You may want a set of nuts or tcus to protect the scrambling between the second to last and last bolt.
