Description

This spire is shorter and downhill from Khayyam spire. Both Khayyam and Rubaiyat were named by Beckey (a Rubaiyat is a four line poem, in this case by Omar Khayyam). There are several lines up this. The original Conn line is 2 pitches from the downhill (southwest) side, or you can get up in one pitch from the north side.

An example of a Rubaiyat of Khayyam:

If with wine you are drunk be happy,
If seated with a moon-faced (beautiful), be happy,
Since the end purpose of the universe is nothing-ness;
Hence picture your nothing-ness, then while you are, be happy!

Getting There

Follow the Spires trail until the last and largest fork off to the right towards the gulleys. Walk uphill toward the spires until you see the obvious yellow wall on Khayyam. Look for the shorter spire right in front of Khayyam.
