Description

Just around the corner from King Crimson are these paired spires- Macita (little Mace) named for its resemblance to the main tower of the Mace, and the squat but interesting Fire Hydrant spire 30 feet away.

Getting There

Follow the King Crimson approach to the base of the Southwest Face route, then contour below the cliff bands to reach the notch between the two towers.

I strongly recommend bringing or wearing long pants on the final bit of the approach from King Crimson to the spires. The Cats Claw is terrible back there, and can be a real disappointment if you are not prepared for such. Very isolated area. Feb 11, 2011
