Horsethief Spire Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: The north side of Horsethief Spire.
Horsethief Spire stands just a quarter mile south of Horsethief Lake, and is home to a number of high-quality routes. The climbs are on either the east or west faces and will catch full sun or full shade. Time it the way you want it.
The best access is from the west, past roadside rock, it takes about 10 minutes. Use a gated turn-off on the north side of the road, about a quarter mile from the lake for parking. Hike down the road past RR, and head SW up the hill where the road turns north. As you crest the hill, Horsethief Spire will be on your right. As you approach south end of the spire, you will see a narrow corridor with a huge chock stone jammed in it (near the ground). This corridor takes you through to the west face climbs.
