Description 

Climb up onto the ledge beneath the north face. Traverse to its far end and find an anchor. Climb the arete clipping the north face bolts.
After estaliching this free climb I found rusted studs in the arete. I believe this was the Idaho Falls Mountaineering Clubs bolt ladder. The climbed the spire via aid, then chopped the ladder on rappel. Their route continued on as "E".


Location 

North east corner of Swift Creek Spire


Protection 

8 quickdraws

Steep climb, Good rock, cleaned pretty well not a lot of loose stuff. Pretty step, no chalk so hard to see where your going, but its all there i promise.
