DescriptionThis is the ridiculously cool looking granite spire in the Hell Roaring Lake area of the sawtooths. Very secluded compared to other alpine climbs in the Tetons. Maybe 15 ascents a year.
Getting ThereFrom Stanley Id take ID-75 west for about 12 miles. Turn west onto Decker Flat Rd, cross the Salmon River via a bridge and proceed in one of two ways.
1. If you have a high clearance vehicle proceed along this dirt road for another mile till you hit a fork with a sign discouraging non-4 wheel drive vehicles from proceeding, along with each road marked with a number, I believe 037 and 315. Take the right road, then take another right at the next junction(unmarked) which occurs quickly. The road turns pretty rough here and bends east. Follow this for 4 or 5 miles till you reach the upper Hell Roaring Trailhead. Plan on 45 min for this section of road.
2. If you lack a high clearance vehicle, park at the lower Hell Roaring Lake trailhead which occurs on the right side of the road 1/4 mile after crossing the river. Hike from here.
