DescriptionOne of the Needles-like spires on the same ridge line as Hamilton dome. Collectively called the Hamilton Towers by Secor. This particular one hosts a short north face that was likely climbed in 1953 by the rock climbing section of the Sierra Club. The south face is very impressive and has been seen by very few people. Amazing backcountry granite!
Always check road conditions and peregrine closures Details
Getting ThereFor the south face (WWC), It is necessary to access the Eagle Scout Creek drainage, one drainage south of Hamilton Lakes/Valhalla.
We did this from upper hamilton lake, leaving the trail very near camp in the vicinity of the pit toilet. Up and over the pass just east of the Serpent's Tooth. See approach photo
Apparently, approaching Eagle Scout Creek Drainage directly from the bottom of it in the vicinity of Bearpaw Meadow is also possible. See overview map in the main area page
