Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionThis fine spire is simply stellar. Although a bit breezy at times, North east and western exposures allow comfortable climbing conditions depending on the weather. The elevation makes this area climable during the summer months only. Crisp rock, great lines and fantastic positions makes this a great destination for advanced climbers.
Getting ThereFollow the apprroach as for the Upper Crystal Springs Area, allow 45 minutes. For the east side routes walk left along the catwalk that leaves the large boulder barrier. For the West Side routes go straight up past the large boulder barrier on the left and up the talus gully for about 100 feet(large cairn). A trail and rock steps to the left lead to a large ledge below the west side of the Steeple.
