BETA PHOTO: "Because It's There" as viewed from down...

Description 

High up above the main street of Palisade on the sky line can be seen a small spire. This is it! It was there, so went up it! Very loose sandstone.

Location 

Walk the trail behind the crags above the town of Palisade that leads to the summit Flag. About one hour.

Protection 

One loose bolt to the summit and one loose bolt on the summit to retreat.
