Limestone and broken rock form this detached spire/fin off of the main cliff. Further north are similar protrusions off of the main cliff; these are Petra's Spire and Sabine's Spire.
Across US 550 from the Golf "Wall" (I've always called it Golf Outcrop) one will see Julia's Spire at the base of the large cliff above. This is easily accessed by driving south a quarter of a mile, if that, to an unmarked road on the right. Drive this to its end and park in the lot. Follow the obvious trailhead up past two sweet boulders (nice problems) till it levels out. Right around where the trail starts to drop elevation, look for a small cairn. A sharp right on an initially indistinct trail, will lead directly toward the cliff looming above. Follow a gully to the base of the spire. 40 minutes.

Scramble up the gully between the spire and the lower cliff. Traverse left along narrow ledge to belay. Climb broken, hollow-sounding rock and meander up to quality limestone with wide crack on black face. Up further to edges and anchor. Could use a bolt or two in broken section for a free climb....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
