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.
