The Obelisk, West Face. The Obelisk is an outstanding reddish monolith near the rim of the middle fork of the Kings River, just east of Spanish Mountain. On June 6, Hooman Aprin and I found an interesting new route, the west face. Some seven pitches involved interesting continuous climbing on steep unglaciated granite blessed with excellent holds. NCCS II, F7.
