Good job for getting this one separated from the Fin page...



Great photos, I have some old ones to scan and I'll put 'em up.



A big addition would be a picture of the whole scenario - from Moro Rock - with the approach drawn in. I have a picture which could work, but they're pretty low res...



I am not convinced that Spike Hairdo was the 1st winter ascent. I know someone who, I think did it in winter quite a while ago and did not sign the register 'cause they couldn't find it under the snow and it was getting dark. I will confirm this or refute it and let everyone know. It's just a matter of the exact date, they ski'd in from Mineral King.



Your route description on the regular route says .11a? Hmmm.

Hey, thanks for the information!



I'd sure like to hear about that other winter ascent.



Not surprised that they couldn't find the register. We couldn't find it the first time we did the spire either, via the regular route, and there was no snow on the summit then!



11a? a lot of other sources say 11+, but I've never been able to climb that hard... But certainly willing to change the rating based on consensus!



Thanks again, and I'll see if I can find some scans from Moro Rock as well.

I want to be very sure I am right about that winter ascent before I say more. It was certainly winter conditions, but I am not sure of the date...



As far as the rating, Rob Raker called it 11b. That seemed about right to me in an old school sort of way. Certainly not .11+ though.

Re-checked the topo -- yep, we rated the short face section on pitch four at 5.11b, and the lefthand thin variation higher up at 5.11a.



Changed the text to be consistent with this. Thanks!!

Hey Brutus,



I heard back from my friend about the winter ascent thing (Herb Laeger is the person) and he said they did it in early spring, not technically winter, so there you have it.



Cheers, Kris

Super reading with the fun ingredients of poison oak, ticks, rattlers and pesty bears.

Great looking formation. Gotta love towers and spires in general - easiest free summit route being in the .11's!
