Description

This is the relatively long but skinny peak which separates Rocky Gap road from the main formation to the south which contains pretty much all of the climbing in the Willow Springs area. There are many ways up this thing, from easy 3rd class scrambles up to southeast facing ridgeline, to mixed scrambling/5th class routes up the south face.

Getting There

Our approach took us past the Mother's Crag and then into the wash separating Divided Sky Peak from the main formation containing Mother's Crag. In the distance on the south side of Divided Sky Peak is a humongous right facing low angle corner which arches up and to the right. We aimed for this and it took a lot of bushwhacking and slightly sketchy scrambling to reach the base. This line didn't look great so we scrambled unroped on 4th class terrain on the face to the right of the huge corner. Once above this low angled slab, there are a myriad of ways to scramble and climb to the top. But the best way seems to be to aim for a beautiful looking offwidth "slightly-larger-than-hands" hand crack guarding the final moves to the summit area.

To get off the summit the fastest and easiest way possible, we descended from the main summit to the north via broken up ledges until cliffing out. We then did a single rappel off of a big tree to gain the slope below. Then a quick and easy walk through some brush and trees to Rocky Gap Road.
