Description

Several medium to tall spires and strange formations that when viewed from a distance look like one large jumble of stone. There are zero crowds, shade and sun depending on the route(s) and opportunities for other climbs if one enjoys loose and strange climbing. The rock quality is not great or even good but climbable and moveable (loose). Wear a helmet and choose a belay stance that is out of the falling rock zone.

Getting There

Hike on the Dutchman's Trail toward Miners Needle and when you feel it is appropriate step off the trail and hike to the formations. It takes around 1.25 hours from the Peralta parking area. The Sisyphus spire is the tallest formation but tends to blend into the area until one is closer to the base. Casper looks like it sounds (the ghost) and sits alone, downhill from Sisyphus.
