About Grand View Spire:

A cool spire/tower in the monument. Easy approach, appoximately 2 minutes of hiking, then one rappel. Enter the monument via the western entrance (Fruita). Drive on the road past the visitors center, till you see Grand View parking on the east side of the road. The spot to set up a rappel is north-west of the tourist viewpoint, by about 30 yards.
