Description 

This area is the highest on the hillside of all the Cathedral Spires crags. A wonderful view and uninterrupted solitude offset the lack of high quality routes on this crag. One wonders why there are not more routes on the long inviting dihedrals until you hike up there for a closer inspection. The rock is a different strata from the consolidated granite on the lower crags. This is an area worth visiting once when you have climbed on all the other formations in the area.

Getting There 

The best approach is to hike to the Sunshine Wall and drop down around Turkey Foot Tower. The gully between TFT and the Poe buttress is loose and steep. Follow this straight uphill for a couple hundred yards to the long wall with many dihedrals directly behind the Sunshine Wall.

A long hand/finger crack. The best route on the wall. This would get more stars if it was located in a more accessible area. Starts offwidth for a couple moves through a roof right off the ground. Then wide hands to hands to a second roof stepping left and up a narrow hands to fingers section. You eventually have to use another crack on the left to finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
