Second pillar is similar to the first in size and stature, but offers slightly more challenging routes. Some of the best gear protected routes in the area can be found here. In the spring there is usually a foul-tempered mother goose nesting atop the structure. Tread carefully, as she's very protective, and please try not to disturb her.

Getting There 

From the first pillar, head toward the river. You can't miss it.
