Description [Edit]

From the Crescent Spire-Brenta Spire col, follow the broad ridge to where it narrows near the summit. The final portion of the ridge has a few 4th class steps.

This route is highly recommended for those days where the weather is marginal. Views from the summit are spectacular.

Location [Edit]

See the Brenta Spire page for details on reaching the Crescent-Brenta col.

Continue north along the ridge for the Brenta-Northpost traverse. Otherwise reverse the route to descend.

Protection [Edit]

Most parties would solo the route, though a lightweight rope and a few pieces of gear may be prudent for novice climbers.
