Description

The Honeycomb Spire area is very close to the main parking lot at the Southern entrance yet receives little traffic. The area is easily distinguished by its namesake, the Honeycomb spire. This small tower is recognized by a single bolt on its top.

Getting There

From the main parking lot at the southern entrance, take the first of the cement trails leading from the main parking lot. Follow this trail until it meets the North-South cement trail and keep going straight to the rim top. Once at the rim top, wander South West until you find the cliffs with the small tower. A downclimb can be found a little west along the cliffs.

Sweet little area, take the first path off the main parking (closest to the lot entrance, furthest from the bathrooms) lot where the bathrooms are. Walk off the path at the "T", and drop your rope over the side. Couldn't be but a couple hundred yards. Easiest hike to climbing in the canyon! Good variety of moderate climbs. The cliff faces north, however, so winter climbing is not so great. A 70 degree spring day proved very inviting despite the leftover snow at the bottom. Mar 18, 2010

It's easier to get onto the Honeycomb Spire than the Banana Tower. The Spire is lower than the main cliff (the Tower is level).

But its a much shorter step over the void than the Tower is. Mar 18, 2010
