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!!

Wide crack on north side of New York Deli Wall. Surprisingly chossy. I was expecting a lot more from this climb: 2 *'s in guidebook, accolades from folks who have climbed it. That being said it disappointed... If you want to do something wide in the vicinity, get on Chicken Co-op on South Fin, that, is incredible!...[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ
