Isolated spires are spires that are well... Isolated. I will give moderate details to the spires in this section. How to find or get to them depends on the reader. As Paul Piana said, " it's best to just hike around you can get a visual map of the land." it took 3 years for me to figure out simple spires such as Blade and Prodigal Son even though on the way to work everyday ( sylvan lake) I passed these spires always looking at them wondering if they had been climbed or named. These are in a way GEMs if you do stumble across one or more. Most of these require a backcountry hike in. Always remember to TREAD LIGHTLY and LEAVE NO TRACE most of these spires are in natural pristine areas of the Hills. With all this said good luck have fun be safe and just hike around! I have added these to Sylvan Lake because they are in the vicinity of the lake area.
