Description 

Chablis spire is the southernmost of the four wine spires. It's distinctive "bunny ears" summit is easily distinguished from views to the west. The spire is rarely climbed, but the summit is easily attained from it's east face. A very worthy objective to tack onto a day if you're already back in the area.

Getting There 

Approach either via the Burgundy col approach or up Silver Star Creek drainage. I recommend the former in spring-fall, and the latter in winter.

Climbing Season

For the Washington Pass area.

Weather station 8.9 miles from here

P1: Start by climbing up to a handrail and traversing right towards the large hanging "split block" and nasty looking chimney. [FYI: This handrail may be at snow level depending on the time of year] Once you reach the block, clip the pin and do a slightly awkward step across move onto the block. From here either climb straight up the awesome finger crack right in front of you to a nice ledge (5.8), or keep traversing right until you reach easy terrain that gets you up to the next ledge (5.4).
