Description

The summit of Stonehenge consists of two blocks leaning together forming a corridor thru the formation. An airy summit perched atop an elevated plain and is composed of excellent rock. This area can be crowded due the top rope routes nearby that are popular with climbing schools and beginners. Fortunately Stonehenge forms a fifth class summit with little or no protection on the easiest route.

Herb & Jan Conn climbed the first ascent of this pinnacle in 1960 via a wide spread and an airy traverse but didn't remember any other details.

Getting There

To reach Stonehenge park at Sylvan Lake. Hike along the trail on the west side of the lake. After hiking about five minutes make a left on an old road. Walk thru the roadcut and down to the house. Take a right turn on the trail just before the house and take another right fork in the trail which will lead around the south side of Paydirt Pinnacle.

Follow the trail into the first gully between Inner Outlet and Practice Rock. Stonehenge is on the right side of the gully about 100 feet from the entrance. Stonehenge can be identified by locating a north facing pyramid shaped rock. There is a slightly leftward trending water groove below the stacked summit blocks. Outlet Boulder is just beyond this point.
