Description

This is the funny, little, hoodoo spire that is seen on the North Side of the Eagle-Wolcott Canyon from I-70.

It has chossy sandstone, but you point it out to your friends as you drive by.
Trestle and CMC areas are off limits. Details

Getting There

Exit I-70 at Wollcot and head west on US Hwy 6. Take a dirt road (55) under I-70, and go east on the north dirt frontage road. Stop at the drainage leading up. It is somewhat of an adventure working up the drainage due to loose, muddy, wash walls and such. Keep heading up to the spire.

Huge choss pile and probably more dangerous than I treated it. I can say I climbed it, but I won't ever again. Apr 7, 2015
