The devoted will make the pilgrimage to the hallowed Kangaroo Temple. This is a striking peak that is not visited as often as other rock spires in the Washington Pass area, but the call of holy marsupial adventure beckons.  Rock quality varies, route finding is challenging, and there are some sections where a fall would ruin your day.  Only those willing to make offerings to the shining wallaby will be allowed to reach the summit.  Praise be to the Kangaroo.


Park at the hairpin and hike Southeast (past Poster Peak) to Kangaroo Pass.  Once Kangaroo Pass is reached, drop some elevation before traversing to the South Face.  2-4 hours.
