Description:

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.

3 out of 5 stars Pez Pinnacle

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
