Access Issue: Permit Required For Climbing in El Malpais National Monument Details


Climb the finger/hand crack for 45 feet to a ledge (5.9+). Traverse right on the ledge and thrash up a wide crack (5.9) and around the corner.
Descend by tunneling down the back side of the spire.


The route is on the north face of a large detached block 5.4 miles south of the Sandstone Bluffs Overlook turnoff.
