Rogers Spire
Directions:  The right facing corner and obvious chimney on the far left side of the Catipillar Wall.
Description: This is as classic a chimney climb as the Weissner Route on Humphrey's. It is a very cool route. Roger Martin soloed it on his FA.
    Pitch 1: Chimney up the corner and behind the spire until you get to a mass of slings wrapped around the point of the spire.

Gear: standard rack, but you'd have to work at it to fall out
Descent: rappel the route with 1 rope
History:  April 1972 - Roger Martin
