Getting There

Hike to the Time Zone Wall (see Time Zone). Scamble up left of the Time Zone wall to the top of the ridge. Hike over and down trending left (west) on the north side of the ridge. Alternately, one can hike through the notch of Time Zone and Cap Rock and tend left (west) over slabs to the pillar. The North Pole is the obvious pillar with an oak growing out the top.

The route up the crack probably goes at 5.7/8. The hardest move is about 4ft. off the deck. Also, I find it easier to access this area as approaching the "Below The Dam" area by starting at the Granite Dells Rd. trailhead parking (FREE). The sport route on the West side of the formation probably goes at 5.10/b. All routes can be TR'd from top with the tree. Dec 18, 2014
