Description

The Spires are these 200 ft rock horns on the west side of the canyon. There are some great two-pitch climbs to the summits along with some great one-pitch routes on the south side of the Spires. They provide a great setting in a beautiful canyon.

Getting There

From inside the park hike up the blue-painted trail towards the Outrage wall and then follow the red paint (hard to spot) left towards the Spires. Lots of false, braided trails look tempting but loose and slick.

Anyone know about the line of bolts between the starts of Aguja Celo and UberMachismo? Is it a direct start for Aguja Celo? A couple big moves on pockets and then enters a L-facing lieback crack corner? Feb 11, 2015
The routes on these spires are high quality and fun; around 5.10B. Approach from the road is about five minutes (I'm slow)on a well marked trail. If you can find another party it is fun to set up a tyrolean traverse between the two towers. A single rope will do. Feb 14, 2007
