DescriptionAlthough actually a series of rocks, they're all pretty similiar in character and just easier to describe as one - so here we go:
Luther Spires are a series of granite spires with easy to moderate climbs established and many more waiting for power-drill-based-attention.
Luther Spires is newly developed and as such, there is still a lot of rock that can break off, but the granite seems pretty sturdy beneath.
Getting ThereOut from the parking lot, you'll find a clearing with the trail heading through it.
Follow this trail across a better established trail and follow it as it hops on a large downed tree to cross a stream. Upon crossing the stream, the trail traverses up the hillside for about 10 minutes until you find yourself directly beneath the spires. Then the trail get steep until you find yourself at the base of two spires. Jackass is the intimidating bolted route on the left spire and Just Jerry is to the right.
