Eastpost Spire Rock Climbing
The amazing second summit!
The Eastpost Spire sits just east of the Applebee campground and is only about a stones throw away. It's approximately 400' tall at it's highest point with good rock quality but the rock is generally dirty. There are only a few routes on it that are documented in the guide book but many more have been climbed and gone unrecorded.
From the Kain Hut walk up to the Applebee campground, head east through the camp and there it is.
