This slender spire is visible due south of the dirt road. It is the only spire around. The route is a bolted affair climbing the west face. "Handhold,Handhold,Mantle, Handhold,Handhold,Mantle..." best describes this fun route. I would suggest not trying to stand on the true summit, simply stop at the chain anchors 8'below. If you choose to truely summit, be very carefull downclimbing the pancake.

committing moves to each bolt, there is a key hold that is clearly missing at the 4th bolt that makes this climb a lot harder than a 5.9. Other than that key hold missing i'd give most of the moves a 5.9
