Description Suggest change

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 Suggest change

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.
