Description

This pair of aesthetic spires is perched up on a hill about 400 yards North of the Torch. Ballpoint is to the West and Tong is to the East. Ballpoint is the taller of the pair, is split by several horizontal cracks, and has an almost spherical summit. Tong has two distinct summits that are easily reached, Ballpoint is a lot trickier.

The summit of Portal Peak offers a great view of these eye-catching spires.

Getting There

From the base of the Torch on Trail 7, bushwhack North for 400 yards.
