Description

Squaretop is the formation that appears flat-topped when looking at the skyline of the west Stronghold. It is home to one of the Stronghold's best routes, Cragaholic's Dream. To approach Lower Squaretop, where Cragaholic's starts, follow the directions below.

Getting There

Drive into the West Stronghold to the end of the road. For directions to this point, see climbaz.com/Backcountry/gra…

For an overhead view of the approach use the .kmz file at this address:

From the parking area, take the righthand wash (the one next to the fence by the start of the path leading to the East Stronghold). Stay in the main wash, keeping an eye on Westworld dome to your left. After about half a mile, the wash curves to the northeast and heads toward Squaretop. Stay in the wash until Lower Squaretop is to your right and you can see the distinctive triangular roof on the second pitch of Cragaholic's Dream. When the climb is directly above you in the wash, you will find a gully that is easy to follow to the base of the cliff. If you don't make any wrong turns the approach takes about 45 minutes. Total approach distance is just over a mile.
