Description [Suggest Change]

The Acropolis is a big formation found just north of the Steamboat Rock/Tisha Spire/Princess Spire cluster.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

The Acropolis is approached from the Midgley Bridge parking area and sits just north of Tisha Spire. From the parking area, take the Wilson Canyon Trail to the Jim Thompson Trail turnoff, then after about five minutes on the JTT, turn uphill and gain the ridge above that is followed to Steamboat Rock. From there, you can traverse the saddle over to reach the south face of Acropolis.
