Description

A cliff band of weathered bighorn dolomite perched high on the east side of the open canyon that houses Bull Creek. There are a couple of nice towers adjacent to the cliff. The approach is rather gnarly, with a steep uphill through some dense dead-fall; this is the most difficult of the developed pinnacle zones to access, but holds one of the most shapely spires.

Getting There

From Sheridan, head north on Interstate 90 for 15 miles to US Highway 14—Exit 9. Follow Highway 14 west for 7 miles, passing through Ranchester, to Dayton. From Dayton, follow Highway 14 for 25 miles to Burgess Junction. Turn right (west) onto Highway 14a and proceed for almost 4 miles. Turn left (south) onto Forest Service Road 176. Follow this, past a junction with Forest Service Road 172 on the right, for about 1/2 mile until it dead-ends on the edge of a meadow.

Hike south on a single track trail, through some trees and into another meadow section, for about 1/2 mile. The cliff band will be obvious high on the ridge above. Cross Bull Creek (can find a spot to hop it) and head up the steep hill, generally staying just left (north of) a small drainage. The hill is steep, and once the forest is entered, there is a lot of dead-fall that makes for slow going. Put your head down and press on. You should pop out in a talus field below the cliff and spires. Approximately 45-60 minutes from the car.
