Small granite pinnacle situated between Storm Point and Symmetry Spire. First ascent via the Northwest Ridge was climbed after the FA of Storm Point, in bad weather, hence the names.
Can be approached from String Lake or Jenny Lake via the standard Symmetry Spire/ Symmetry Couloir approach. Taking the water taxi across Jenny Lake saves some energy and time. If parking at String Lake, cross the bridge at the southern end of the lake and head to the horse trail. After all of the switchbacks, look for a climbers trail on your right that starts in some thick bushes immediately before crossing a small stream that drains the southeast side of Symmetry Spire. Follow this trail through the bushes towards the right side of a seasonal waterfall and up to a 4th class section in a cul-de-sac, then left though some loose gravel. This section will be snowy until mid-late July of most years and would require an ice axe. Another option is to approach Ice Point after climbing Symmetry Spire, as it lies just off to the side of the Southwest Couloir descent route.

Either way begin directly beneath the ridge proper. After this section you reach a notch in the ridge, from there follow the knife edge to the summit. A brief section near the summit involves laybacking the crest of the ridge with yo...[more] Browse More Classics in Wyoming
