Midnight Spire Rock Climbing
Midnight Spire is a detached spire located near Jam Crack Wall and the left side of P-Wall. The two most popular routes face north and are typically in the shade (great destination on a hot day). Great views and great exposure from the top of the spire. Check it out when you're looking for something different.
To access Midnight Spire, take the trail to P-Wall. Turn left at P-Wall, pass Garden Wall and continue up to the notch between the Spire and Jam Crack Wall. When you get to the notch, drop down and left to access the base of Full Moon and Milky Way. Access "Aurora Borealis" by dropping down and working your way right (counterclockwise) around the spire.
