Nice finger crack for the first 20ft, takes all sorts of nuts. Crux is probably down low, with good feet in the crack and nice finger locks. The finger crack tops out with a loose death block that is very tempting to pull on, but can be avoided. After that it is a wide easy crack up to the top of the spire, from the top you can traverse left about 6 ft to a two bolt anchor with chains. Save a number 2 camalot for a directional before traversing to the anchors.


Back side of the lower far left spire


Single set of cams up to 2.5in and nuts
