QDs, lots of carabiners, and selection of angle pitons. Some keyhole hangers and tie offs helpful.

Climb the bolt ladder up the steep south face of the Pierced Nipple. Towards the top, the angle decreases and free climb loose cobbles to a two-bolt belay and register. Rappel with two ropes to the ground. Fun weirdness! Though once an A1 aid climb, now it goes free.

This route is \"fun weirdness.\" Make sure to have 40 biners for the route, a few rivet hangers, one tie-off, and a helmet. If you are doing it with a partner, you may want to break it up into two pitches. Stop at the hanging belay, then go to the register. From the register to the true summit is actually about 25\' of exciting climbing. I feel this should be counted as a pitch. So with a partner, break it up in three pitches. Bring a long piece of webbing (about 12\') to sling the anchor on the true summit. Make sure to take EXIT 169 to find this spire!
