Sparrow Spire as seen from the Desert Mule approac...


P1: 5.7, 30'. Climb loose rock/crack on the East face to access a large ledge. Gear belay.

P2: 5.6R, 100'. Climb low angle but easy terrain with sparse protection to the summit.

Rap - Rap with double ropes off two bolts and some tat that is probably rotten by now. Sorry - will add chains spring 2016.


Same approach as Secret Spire (Desert Mule) but bushwhack left instead of traversing right to Desert Mule. Also see the overview photo on the Secret Canyon page.


Single set to #3 Camelot
