Description 

Spelunk Spire is one of the overlooked backwoods crags behind Reynolds Hill. Spelunk Spire hosts a variety of shorter pitches, from the spiral namesake scramble, to stiff stout cracks which barely accept digits.


Getting There 

Begin your approach as for Reynold's Hill, by crossing the creek. Head right paralleling the creek, but crossing high ground above the creek, before descending near the creek bed willows. After passing distinct views of Old Devil's Playground across the creek to the right, including the arch of the distinctive Muscle and Fitness, look for a very faint path heading up and left through a small open rising field and then sparse trees. The trail quickly becomes distinct. After several hundred yards, Spelunk Spire will come into view across a meadow.

Classic sandbag. This is overhanging, has tough sizes, and there is one hand jam 3/4 the way up. For feet, rand smears in the crack are the way to go. It is totally sweet. TR it if you want, but better yet, haul out a pad and boulder it. No, your fingers will not rip off and stay in the crack if you fall. Go for it! This is one of my favorite boulder problems EVER. Really, EVER. About the name: Scarpelli was wandering around behind Reynolds Hill one day when he ran into a couple of clim...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
