Polly Hart climbing, Eric Hobday on first belay, f...

Description 

Climb up the huge plates on steep jugs finishing at the belay anchor atop the first pitch. 100'. Ascend to the right, then up face to corner to top of spire. 60'. Rappel route.

Location 

Located on the north side of Bracksieck's Pillar. Follow trail to upper east side, then cut through notch to nice staging area. The route is just past the notch before the tree. Rappel route.

Protection 

Bolted. Fixed anchor belay stations. Some protection can be placed between the upper bolts on the first pitch as there's some runout. Medium size cams would suffice.

So which pitch is crux? Book said first but we thought 2nd? Medium cam recommended for shorter climbers to protect getting to the third bolt on 2nd pitch!

Incredible climb! Beware of the long runout on 1st pitch. Easy terrain on big holds, but steep and a bit unnerving, nonetheless. Second pitch also has a runout stretch on easy ramp. But this pitch is steep, airy and memorable! Climbing never reaches more than 5.7+ in difficulty. However, the runouts and exposure on the second pitch push the grade up a bit. Well worth doing!

Thought it was no harder than 5.8. Incredibly featured climbing. The second pitch is def the psychological crux with the amazing exposure. Couple of spots for supplementary pro if you want to place it, though the "runout" sections are incredibly featured and no problem. Will climb this route every time I get the chance.
