Access Issue: 2017 Seasonal Closures - Partial Closure Lifting Details

Description

This is an organizational entry to help facilitate the L->R function that is impeded with the area containing two distinct towers. So, this is the 50 foot white-colored sandstone tower of the pair. The rock is a bit more solid than the red twin tower of the pair. It has an anchor up top from which you can rappel.

With its proximity to the paved paths, you should expect plenty of non-climber spectators for your ascents...even possibly cheers.

Getting There

This is one of the central tiny spires in the midst of larger towers nearby. You can park at the North Main Lot and walk to it by walking on the trail between North and South Gateway Rocks, and it is right there.

From the parking spots near the junction of Juniper Way Loop and Garden Drive on the west side of the loop, walk towards the Three Graces and then veer north.

White Chalk is not allowed!

The Park staff want to remind the climbing community that white chalk (calcium carbonate) is prohibited in the park due to visual impact. While any chalk use is discourage, chalk substitute that does not discolor the rock may be used. Eco balls are sold at the Visitor Center.

When placing closure signange/notifications, our park rangers noted chalk stains on several routes in the closure area (Anaconda and Grapefruit Dance), as well as the Blowouts bouldering area (which were cleaned last year, meaning all the chalk here is new). We are again hoping that the community can come together and address this issue before it requires any action on our part. Access may come into play! We'd also like to thank the PPCA for their efforts to remove chalk stains in these areas last year and hope that local climbers might consider helping them remove chalk stains from the rock this season- check their website for more info on upcoming events- pikespeakclimbersalliance.o….
