This is a small spire located just to the West of Fin City. It catches your eye primarily as you sit atop Fin City looking W about 100 feet. You notice the natural notch in the skinny summit and wonder about a simul-rappel...and you notice a bit of white and wonder if someone has gone there before you. So, you wander over, find at least 3 lines to ascend, pick one, and find that the white was evidence that a bird enjoyed that spot for a while.
Hike north from the parking lot towards Gem Lake. At the T intersection, head east. Go to where the trail goes past the closest spot to Crescent Wall. Cross the draw where the draw between the trail & Crescent Wall is shallowest. Hike up as for Fin City.

Belay.Descent is via a simul rappel.Perhaps a star is generous, but it felt worth the effort, since we were in the area....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
