Description

The Spur is an outlaying formation west of The Canyon and the Egg. It consists of one large pyramid shaped crag and several smaller formations. The largest formation is nearly sixty feet in height. The rock is quite sharp, friable, and loose even by Texas Canyon standards.

Getting There

From the base of the Elephant's Head (a.k.a. Hyperion Slab) continue west and over the ridge. Continue to follow the trail west for ~ 300 yds to the east face of the formation.

We encountered a young Southern Pacific rattlesnake sunning itself at the base of the east face of The Spur today. I wondered when, with the summer-like weather we're having, our scaley friends would decide it was time to come out of bromination.
