North Early Winter Spire Rock Climbing
Rapping from the massive chockstone at the bottom ...
Nearly as impressive as its neighbor, the North Early Winter Spire tends to be less popular because it has no easy way up or down. Nevertheless, it has many excellent routes and the summit view is great. The quality of the granite is very good. The summit is at 7760'.
Most of the routes on North Early Winter are on the west side, so approaching via the Blue Lake Trail is best. The approach will take most parties 1-2 hours. The descent route scrambles down south and west of the summit, then takes several rappels down to the Southwest Coulour between North and South Early Winter, from which some scrambling and one more short rappel bring you back to the ground.
