Ethic inherited from Phantom Spires
Trad rules. Bolts are only tolerated on new lines where no traditional pro can be had. If in doubt, don't drill.
A classic line up the "Upper Spire".
5.7, 140ft. Climb through a scary series of hollow booming flakes to single solid flake about half way up, then up this until it ends with a small ledge at a horizontal break.
5.6, 50ft. Step left from the belay to a wide crack. Climb mostly the face left of the crack and left edge of the crack, reaching right into the crack to place gear.
Climb takes large cams, generally 2-each BD Camalots #2, #3, and #4 (or equivalents) as well as a normal rack.
