Default Nesakwatch North Spire and south attempt 06 Aug 2016

Heading up the FSR there's a car in front of us and a car behind, which turned out to be Alex, Ben and Matt heading for Rexford. Not a lot of parking space now, room for about 4 cars, it's about a 10 minute walt to the trailhead.
Lots of blueberries as we haed up the steep trail to the alpine.


slesse area.

Steep route up to the col.

A cairn marks the start.




On the col, Michelle with the South spire behind.


We drop down a little and get on the East side.


What looked possible from lower down turns out to be harder than expected.


wet moss and dirt in places don't help the grip.

We try several approaches, we'e about 3/4 of the way up, close to the last summit block, but we've only got a couple of slings and decide to call it quits and head for the north spire.


Climbing back up to the col.


South spire with Rexford close behind.


Another view of the South Spire, don't really get the scale though.


On the North Spire.

The view in the other direction.


Bump into Alex Ben and Matt on the Col.


Climbing back down the crux section.
