Description

A proud and varied tower that dominates from Fairy Meadows base camps. East Huey is the terminal peak of the ridge running directly from Phenocryst Spire (left of the LFT). Being so close to camp it is convenient that East Huey actually has a little something for everybody.

While hard women free "Riders on the Storm" (5.12+) the rest of us can crag out on a number of wonderful crack lines at its base, less than 20 minutes from the Meadows. Apparently Bill Buckingham and company found a wandering 4th class route to the summit that follows mossy terrace ledges around the south/east face, which they used to access the ridge and snag it's FAs. Another very moderate climb lies just around the back side of the spire and takes the west ridge to the summit.

Getting There

Get to Fairy Meadows. Look towards the LFT, that closest mass of rock in that direction is East Huey Spire.
