The Spine is a location in Zion Canyon.


The Spine has several rock formations jutting up from the plateau, resembling vertebrae, thus its name. There is not much at this location besides a few miscellaneous items and plants you can pick. It does offer a good view up the valley, however. A couple of yao guai (including the giant yao guai seen killing a gecko), and a few geckos can usually be found here, both dead or alive. There is also a hollow log nearby that can be looted.

Notable loot

  • A campfire sack near a skeleton at the western end of the summit, near the ridge and behind a tall rock.


  • Climbing the tallest, arched rock in this location gives a great view, but can result in Follows-Chalk getting stuck against a wall.


The Spine appears in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.
