Description

These are a series of spires/rock towers just a bit northwest of Devil's Head. There has not been much development, but there is potential for a lot. Some routes are listed in Hubbel's guidebook but not many. These spires stick up in the air away from the ridge (except 2nd and 3rd, which are on the windward, SW-facing side), so they stay sunny and clear off early. It is unlikely you will see anyone all day at any time of year. The rock is typical Pike's Peak granite with good quality and very little exfoliation. This area was not involved in any of the Buffalo Creek area fires, and so the slopes are treed. Water is not available.

Getting There

From Sedalia, head west on CO 67 until you get to Sprucewood, turn left (south), and drive about 7 miles (2.6 miles?) on the curvy road until you get to Trail 677. You can take this, or drive another mile or so south and pull out to the right (west) on a forest road access (used for thinning) with a green gate. Hike west and then north on the path of least resistance, using old logging/thinning roads and eventually crossing TR 677, heading north until you hit the South Noddle (4th Noddle). Expect 45 minutes minumum to get to S. Noddle, a bit longer to get to 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Noddles.
