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.
Fun mixed bolt and gear route. Begins with 10-15 feet of easy climbing to a roof and left trending hand to fist crack (5.9). The jamming is a bit awkward until you get established above the roof, but it protects perfectly with a #3 BD camalot. Rest at a ledge and then fire the right facing lieback up to a roof and then undercling right (crux) to a big knob and a bolt. Pull onto the slab above and climb past another bolt or two to the two bolt anchor. You can set a toprope with a 60m rope.
Begins in the middle of the south face of lower spire (climbers left of Jack Corner). You can walk down around the east side of the spire from Five Tendons.
