We climbed what seems to be a variation to the Normal Route described by Ingrahm. It begins in a corner that has had recent rock fall, creating the route. It climbs a layback crack up the corner and turns out onto the north face of the Spike. Follow a left trending crack and lichen face up to a steep crack and a notch just below the summit. One can belay from this summit but it needs some anchors installed.
Begin the route on the west side of the Spike. Scramble up a bit and look for the brown corner. We left a rappel anchor on top but it needs to be replaced with some bolts for a better belay and rap station. One can rap off the south side of the Spike.
There is a fixed hex in the crack on the north face but I wouldn't use it. A single rack with doubles in hand size cams will sew this route up nicely.
