The Spur from the east.
The Spur is an outlaying formation west of the First Corridor and the Egg. It consists of one large pyramid shaped crag and several smaller formations. The largest formation is nearly sixty feet in height. The rock is quite friable and loose even by Texas Canyon standards.
From the base of the Elephant's Head (a.k.a. Hyperion Slab) continue west and over the ridge. From the crest of the ridge follow the trail west for ~ 300 yds to the east face of the formation.

We encountered a young Southern Pacific rattlesnake sunning itself at the base of the east face of The Spur today. I wondered when, with the summer-like weather we're having, our scaley friends would decide it was time to come out of bromination.
