Access Issue: Dirt road winter closures Details
Eldorado National Forest closes dirt roads during wet conditions between November and May. The main office number 530-622-5061 might help you get current conditions, which aren't always updated on the website. fs.usda.gov/detail/eldorado… When the road is closed, simply park on a pullout of Wrights Lake Road and walk the extra mile.
The Prow is a great route with plenty of exposure. The route climbs the left side of the large rectangular block on the upper North Side of Middle Spire. This is a wonderful second pitch to Over Easy (5.7) or any of the routes in this area. From the two anchors (at the bottom left side of the rectangular block) climb up a few feet and step out to the arete. The first bolt is hidden just around the corner. You definitely want to find this and clip it prior to committing yourself out on the arete. Fun and exposed face climbing using the left edge gains the summit 30' up. Safe and airy!
