Cathedral Spires has enticed climbers up its 1,200-foot approach for decades. With beautiful cracks and immaculate granite slabs, this area is truly a climbers' paradise. Cathedral Spires is home to nesting raptors each spring, when a seasonal closure takes effect. In addition to respecting this closure, please use established trails through Denver Water Board property to preserve what makes Cathedral Spires special. Access trails leading to the base of Cynical Pinnacle are steep.
