Description

A long ridge of rock that juts out from the back side of East mountain and tapers to a point. Separated from East Mountain by Tabloid pass. The East Spur has several good areas with many classic problems. Some of the main areas are,
  • The Maze which is usually quite crowded as there are possibly more problems here than any other area with guided access.
  • The Gunks where there are classics from V1 to V12 including The Vulgarian, Fight or Flight, New Religion, Windy Ass and The Full Monty.
  • Stableboy Rock which is a bit more secluded and has many nice harder problems, most of the good stuff is V8 and up.
  • The Sausage Factory which sits across from The Maze and has some fun problems in the V2-V4 range as well as one of the hardest V8's in the park, The Long Haul.
  • Another Problem of note is Mother of the Future which is a V9 roof crack above The Sausage Factory.

The 45 Degree Wall which is closed is also part of the East Spur.

Getting There
