It needs more than hangers! It needs new bolts. Yi...


This is a real spire complete with a little summit.

Follow the bolt ladder. Last time I did this there where no hangers so come prepared.


Obvious start.


Bring keyhole hangers or wire stoppers. Better yet replace the quarter inch bolts.

Getting to the ledge where the route starts is not exactly a walk up, a light rack might be nice. There is an OW right next to the ledge that looked decent, probly hands to fists #2-4 Camalots is my guess 15-30 feet probably. Let's get out and replace those suckers!
