Info: Approach ledge starts around 13.7k and has a few cairns. There's 2 good fixed pieces (maybe 3, I can't remember) in the crack. Summit anchor is solid (large bolt and chain, tricam and hex with webbing). Middle anchor (on ledge west of midpoint of crack) is 2 pitons with questionable webbing (I used it, probably better to replace the webbing though). Lower anchor (base of crack) is in good shape with several slings around a block.

Info: The Spire is as grand and crazy as ever. I cleaned up the top anchor, because when I topped out it was a bit messy. Now the anchor consists of a Bolt with a chain and rap ringplaced last September, a bomber hex, and a large tricam with some webbing and cord attached to the other rap ring. The old ¼ inch bolt is marked with a historic artifact tag and has a mess of old webbing attached to it. The permagear in ascending order consists of a small nut about 10ft off the deck, a large nut about 30-40ft and an old piton with a ring alittle over half way. all of it still looks to be in great shape! Trip report coming soon!
