Description 

The West Face of Sandwich Spire is in a tight gully that gets very little sun. The approach, which is a royal pain of downed oak and Manzanita bush-whacking, will almost guarantee that you will be alone should you venture to this crag. Should you choose to accept the approach mission you will find great rock quality with many sport routes in the 5.10-11 range.


Getting There 

Really?? It looks like it would be so easy as you stare at the spires when you drive past 7 Cataracts.

I personally think your best bet is to hike out towards Beaver Wall (at Windy Point) and start making your way down the hill. The trail that passes Turret Rock trail mentioned in SQLII is no longer there as far as I could tell. Having a copy of Squeezing the Lemmon II is handy. The west face is located in the tightest of the gullies between the spires and is up road from Hawks Bill Spire by only a little ways. Good Luck!!

Great Rock quality and great vertical climbing with a good length of crux right in the middle. Unlike some other Windy Point area classics the holds will stay put on this climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
