Description 

Cool summit. Good rock. Lots of potential. 3 routes have been established. Named after Neal Spradlin who went missing in 2010.

Getting There 

Approach from lower Reed lake. Go west up the benches. Spradlin spire is the lower peak directly south of the Mile High Wall. Look for the maddeningly obvious golden colored slab midway up the south face. About 40 minutes from the lake. If you hit Toto - you've gone too far.

Climbing Season

For the Hatcher Pass area.

Brothers in Arms 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b  Alaska : Anchorage & South Central A... : ... : Spradlin spire
Start under orange streaked rock above a series of roofs on the east face. 50 meter pitch with a 5.10 section leads towards the south face. On the south face, climb a diagonal crack to a ledge / stance. Climb a 5.9 pitch on the right margin of the huge gold slab. Continue for a few classic easy alpine rock pitches with decent rock quality. Walk off to the south down a gully. Some might want to abseil. Standard rack. Not a suitable route for people used to bolts every 6 feet....[more]   Browse More Classics in Alaska
