Description 

Midnight Spire is a detached spire located near Jam Crack Wall and the left side of P-Wall. The two most popular routes face north and are typically in the shade (great destination on a hot day). Great views and great exposure from the top of the spire. Check it out when you're looking for something different.

Getting There 

To access Midnight Spire, take the trail to P-Wall. Turn left at P-Wall, pass Garden Wall and continue up to the “notch” between the Spire and Jam Crack Wall. When you get to the notch, drop down and left to access the base of “Full Moon” and “Milky Way”. Access "Aurora Borealis" by dropping down and working your way right (counterclockwise) around the spire.

This route is good to do once if you want something new to do that includes a nice amount of exposure. After clipping your belayer into a low bolt to the right of the route, step out left and onto the wall. The exposure starts as soon as you step onto the route. Follow the rusty bolt line straight up to a two bolt anchor with chains. Because of the rusted state of all of the bolts and chains on this route, some may prefer continuing past the chains to a higher set of chains at the top of the spi...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
