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.
