Spliff Spire from the wall above.

Description 

This is the nice looking tower to the left of Hideout Wall. The only problem is that it has no cracks! From the bottom it is over 100' tall. We hiked around the left side to access the notch between the tower and the wall. The climb follows 5 bolts and features up the right side of the face. I did 1 or 2 hook moves between each bolt. After about 50' you gain the shoulder and scramble up to the top. There may be enough holds for someone to free climb.


Location 

Drive past the campround turn off, as you are going past the wall you will see the tower. Start hiking cross country parallel to the tower before heading up to the left side of the tower to gain the notch. The hike is pretty steep and a little loose near the top.
The Tower can also be approached from the top. (Recommended)


Protection 

I didn't know how to rate this. It's basically sport hooking. 1 BD Cliffhanger, 1 BD Talon, 5 Quick draws. The last bolt did not sit right and should probably be replaced (fine for aiding on). There is a 2 bolt anchor just below the top.
