A group of spires northwest of the Weasel formation on the north side of Cane Wash. We named the area Dead Man's Spires as a route and a couple of attempted old routes were found on these spires. As these climbers are unknown we are assuming they have passed on!!!
Dead Mans Spires lie about 3/4 miles northwest of the Weasel formation. There are several spires in this area, one other than Resurrection Spire has a route on it put up possibly in the 80's? Also a couple of failed attempts have been found. From the San Rafael River bridge drive south for about 2.2 miles to a right turn with a cattle guard on Oil Flat Rd. Go 1.0 mile to a Y junction, take the right fork, go 1.6 miles to another Y junction, take the right fork(Mexican Sweeps Road) and follow this for 3.7 miles to Cane Wash. Turn left up Cane Wash for 3 miles to a small wash on the right below the towers. Drive up this to camp sites. Recommend 4x4.
