Description

Sandberg Peak is one of the cooler looking spires in the Needles. It is extremely thin and rickety, especially higher up. Until just recently, this spire had but two routes, both 5.8 and lacking much protection. Now, a bolted route climbs the downhill side. If you climb this spire, be ready to answer a lot of questions because it is right next to the road.

Getting There

Drive to the Cathderal Spires parking lot. Sandberg Peak is the obvious thin spire just uphill of the lot.
