Description

The summit overlooking the north end of Jenny Lake. Named for it's appearance from the north.
Most of the better routes face south and west and are approached by the Symmetry Couloir, a steep gully that can hold snow into July.

Getting There

The southern routes are accessed from Symmetry Couloir by way of the Cascade Cyn horse trail. The north and east sides of the peak are approached by way of Hanging Canyon.

Anyone know of a route on the main south face of symmetry spire? Was up there earlier in the year and saw a few old bolts but had to rappel off ~230' up b/c of time constraints. We started on a series of ledges between the SW Ridge and Durrance Ridge head up and right for a few pitches. At the time we though we were on a linkup to Durrance but seeemingly not... 4 days ago

We left a rope fixed to the rappel on 9/8/16. Core shots...anyway, if someone wants it, take it! Sep 10, 2016
I dropped my phone somewhere in the descent gully, I'd be happy to reward anyone who finds it, it's an iPhone in a black case. Also this was an outstanding climb! I'd recommend to anyone looking to break into alpine climbing Aug 17, 2015
Don't underestimate the approach on this one, there's about 3000' of vertical gain before you even start climbing. Avoid the main gully where the waterfall is coming down. Instead, aim for the smaller waterfall over smooth rock on the right; tucked away to the right of that is the correct gully. The trail is pretty well defined all the way up. Jul 26, 2010
