DescriptionAnother outcropping of eroded Big Horn Dolomite featuring a handful of spires and a handful of crag routes. There are a couple patches of good quality rock, although the towers are of the same friable stone as the other areas. Another highly scenic locale only minutes from your car.
Getting ThereFrom Dayton (base of the mountains on the east side of the range), follow Highway 14 for 56.5 miles to Forest Service Road 10 on the right (just before reaching Granite Pass).
Follow Road 10 for about 1.5 miles, past a switchback corner, and turn left onto Road 21601 (high clearance vehicles recommended, but not necessary). Follow this for roughly ½ mile and park off the road in a meadow.
The rocks are obvious as you drive in on Road 10 on the ridgeline to the left of the road. However, they wont be visible from where you park, as you are above them. Hike across an open meadow east (back toward Highway 14) for about 100 meters, and you should end up right on top of the cliffs. Follow one of the corridors down into the spires. Its easiest to orient yourself by continuing through the spires to the open hillside just below them.
