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.
DescriptionThis climb ascends a straight in corner just to the right of The Last Lockup. Climb some blocky terrain that's steeper than it looks. Enter the corner proper and climb the corner. The crux comes about half way up at a bulge. Climb to the top of the formation and belay at the chains located above The Last Lockup. The way the corner is formed yields some unusual and sharp jams.
LocationOn the East side of the Lower Spire, right of the Last Lockup. The climb is the straight in corner.
