AKA Balanced Rock
Follow the Swift Creek Canyon Road for a few miles from where it turns to dirt. The SPire is obvious on the left side of the road. From a parking area on the curve directly under the spire, walk back down the road about 50 yards. Thrash through the bushes up and left, then find a trail that traverses up (right) to the spire. The approach time is about 3 minutes if you find the trail.
