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.

This is an excellent, technical, and desperate crack. Lieback a discouragingly thin crack, find feet out left, and don't let them pop! The barn door will spit you off if you aren't careful! The crux is the first 10 feet, followed by better and better liebacks as you get higher up. If flared hand jams suit your fancy, they are an alternative for the last 10 feet....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
