GoldenEye Spire Rock Climbing
Golden Eye Spire
This prominent spire is located at the head of a steep and rocky gully and is one of the more easily identifed formations from the road. There is about half a dozen routes on all sides of this well-featured formation ranging from 5.6 to 5.11 with most of the climbs being 5.8 and easier.
This was one of the first formations in the area to be climbed and the fact that it has no easy way to the top makes it appealing to a climber - the nice view of the surrounding desert from the top certainly doesn't hurt either!
Hike uphill from Goldfinger Rock
to the head of the dry streambed where you'll find this prominent rock. Plan on a 45 minute hike from the car.
