Description 

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.


Getting There 

From the Kain Hut walk up to the Applebee campground, head east through the camp and there it is.

It can also be used as the descent on a traverse of Eastpost (via the SE ridge).To approach, first hike up to the Applebee dome campground. From the dome, head up faint trails towards the col between Crescent and Eastpost.Once the col is reached, head up the ridge. The climb is slight...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
