This is a spire located in a beautiful, out of the way spot. Pitch one; go up a crack (5.7/5.8) to a reach (5.9), followed by a 5.10b finger section, a bit of aid, then 5.8 hands to a stance. Pitch two, Continue up the crack(5.9) through a couple of bulges, ending on a 5.10b ramp which cuts to the right. This area rarely gets visited by humans.


Back off a hidden road NW of the main ManyFarms-Chinle road. See Eric's Desert Rock for detailed map.


Double/triple set of cams, one long thin pin. One double rope rape from the summit.
