This spire is oriented East and West on a ridge and also has a southwardly ridge possibility. The rock is on a ridge south in line with the Spire One and the Javelin, but much lower and shorter. The sun, following its normal patterns, seems to light the east face by AM and West side by PM, and the south everywhere in between. The rock is god enough, but does have an occasional loose crystal, so be mindful that it is a lower-traffic route.
Approach via the Cathedral Spires trail for perhaps 1/2 mile, then branch right. Go up some log stairs and ascend via the trail as for the notch between Spire One and Spire Two. The Grace Note Spire will be the first salient tower of note to your left and is about level with the base of the Khayyam Spire on your right.

Climb up easy chimney to cracks on the center of the east face of this spire, to steeper bulge where the pro is slightly wanting and the rock a little suspect. Climb through this with good footwork to better cracks and to the summit, staying on this pleasant East face (afternoon shade).There is a summit register in a spice bottle on top with F.A. info and some signatures. Maybe take a few 4" sheets of paper to add room for more signatures....[more] Browse More Classics in SD
