The Crescent Spire is located to the north of the Applebee campground between the Bugaboo Spire to the west and the Crescent Towers to the east. It has numerous 5 to 6 pitch 5.10's with McTech Arete and Paddle Flake being the most popular by far. Due to it's easy approach, short routes and bolted rap anchors (which you only need one 60m rope for) it makes a perfect crag for mediocre weather or rest days.
If approaching from the Kain hut the best option is to head toward the Bugaboo-Snowpatch Col but turn right before you get to the col and follow the Crescent Glacier to the spire.
