BETA PHOTO: Sensei Spire from the Stitches Wall.


This mostly chossy (it has one good side) spire is right next to the Stitches Wall. It offers a small summit more excitement than your average short sport route.

Getting There 

Same as for the Stitches Wall. That is, drive up Millcreek Canyon ~1.5 miles from the fee station. You’ll see a creepy abandoned camp of some sort on the south side of the road, a gated parking area on the north side of the road, and a crosswalk connecting the two. Park on the north side of the road on the gravel shoulder. Walk across to the north side of the gated parking area and follow a faint trail steeply up the slope for a few hundred feet. It's the piece of rock 75 feet east of the Stitches Wall, and the route faces the Stitches Wall.

Climbing Season

For the Wasatch Range area.

Weather station 1.4 miles from here

This vertical route offers fun moves, cool holds, and a small summit. The rock is sharp and of so-so quality. It's a good one to climb if desert towers call to you but you're stuck in the city.The route gets morning shade....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
