This small spire is in a wonderful location. It starts out with a rotten crack (5.8), to 5.10b fingers, to 5.9 hands, to a 5.10a roof, then cut to the right to the shoulder of the spire (easy). 75' rap (one rope).


This spire is located NW of the highway between Many Farms and Chinle. There is a full description of how to get there in Eric's Desert Rock. It is in an easy to get to, but hidden out-of-the-way area.


double rack of cams should do it.
