Description

A group of spires northwest of the Weasel formation on the north side of Cane Wash. We named the area Dead Man's Spires as a route and a couple of attempted old routes were found on these spires. As these climbers are unknown we are assuming they have passed on!!!

Getting There

Dead Mans Spires lie about 3/4 miles northwest of the Weasel formation. There are several spires in this area, one other than Resurrection Spire has a route on it put up possibly in the 80's? Also a couple of failed attempts have been found. From the San Rafael River bridge drive south for about 2.2 miles to a right turn with a cattle guard on Oil Flat Rd. Go 1.0 mile to a Y junction, take the right fork, go 1.6 miles to another Y junction, take the right fork(Mexican Sweeps Road) and follow this for 3.7 miles to Cane Wash. Turn left up Cane Wash for 3 miles to a small wash on the right below the towers. Drive up this to camp sites. Recommend 4x4.

My mistake...this is not the area of Cane Wash that is closed. The area that is closed is to the north. Nov 1, 2003

The lower end of Cane wash is closed as a WSA, upper Cane is open with signs marking the trails. Oct 29, 2003
Driving in Cane Wash is prohibited, as this is a Wilderness Study area. Better to hoof it in than follow the path of the illegal ATVers. Oct 29, 2003
