Description

Bearclaw Spire, also known as White Pinnacle Peak, is a sharp point on the southeast flank of Mount Wilson. Despite having no real prominence, it sports a massive southern escarpment. The spire and its buttresses host a few established climbs in addition to a smattering of mystery anchors. The walkoff is a hoot - one of the coolest in Red Rock(s) - bring good shoes for it.

Getting There

Approach: about 1.5 hours. Park at First Creek trailhead and hike into First Creek. The spire is visible on the initial part of the walk. Approach as for Slot Club Wall by climbing out of First Creek itself up the sunny south-facing slope. Traverse left along the base of Slot Club Wall and scramble up a gully to the terrace below the obvious Maw above. Walk along the terrace a few hundred yards toward the various routes in the vicinity of Bearclaw.

Descent: Walk the narrow ridge and scramble all the way down the northeast gully. This is a trippy adventure featuring fixed rope ladders, tunnels, and other (non-technical) shenanigans. Route-finding is easy.
