This climb ascends a straight in corner just to the right of The Last Lockup. Climb some blocky terrain that's steeper than it looks. Enter the corner proper and climb the corner. The crux comes about half way up at a bulge. Climb to the top of the formation and belay at the chains located above The Last Lockup. The way the corner is formed yields some unusual and sharp jams.
On the East side of the Lower Spire, right of the Last Lockup. The climb is the straight in corner.
Standard rack to 3 inches. A number 4 camalot can be used but isn't necessary.

Another must-do at the Lower Spire. A stout 5.9 with nice stemming moves at the crux.
