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.
Description [Suggest Change]
Solid lieback moves up a flake. Crux is in the first few moves. Gets a bit dirty near the top.
Location [Suggest Change]
Located on the North face of Upper Spire, to the right of Harrison Direct. Climb the obvious, left-facing flake. Use the Harrison Direct anchor to rappel down.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Poor pro. Best thing is to climb one of other routes and set a toprope at the 2-bolt anchor west of the anchor for Harrison direct. The anchor is poorly positioned for the last 10 feet of the climb, creating a pendulum hazard.
