Digit is in a group of obvious spires that can be seen from Highway 87 when traveling to Sylvan Lake. The resemble fingers with Digit being the highest finger. When driving through the switchbacks up to Sylvan lake look to your left and on the southwest corner you will see the fingers with Digit. A small turn out is the easiest access to the spire. Turnout is past the switchbacks right where you hit the top if the hill. 2 known routes exist. Short climbs 1 route has 1 bolt on it. What these climbs lack in length they make up for with exposure on the west face ( where both climbs start) the view is stunning of the Nelson creek area as well. Modern set of rap bolts on top.

Getting There 

Drive towards sylvan lake on highway 87 drive through the switchbacks and at the top if the hill will be a nice size gravel turn about. It will be on the left hand side when heading to Sylvan Lake. Just before the lodge.
