Viewed from the road by the pullout.


This little spire has two routes on it. A John Gill line on the uphill side (5.2) and a nice crack on the downhill side (5.8).

Getting There 

Park at the small pullout on the switcback by Endpin and walk a little bit back uphill. Pop-Top is about 25m uphill from the road.

The 5.2 on the back is for sure old school 5.2 so be prepared if you plan to do it.
