Description 

This is labelled as it was the probably route of the first ascent. The spire was climbed via a bolt ladder on Mental Hopscotch and then this crack from the ledge to the summit.
Its actually a short little pitch and could be linked with one of the routes below with good rope management. The anchor on the summit is set up to send you down the southwest face.

Location 

From the ledge above the north face

Protection 

A few pieces of various sizes... perhaps a had size cam and a few smaller ones would suffice.
