Tisha Spire is a squat, sort of lumpy looking spire sitting in a notch between Princess Spire and the much large Acropolis. Although noting earth-shattering, the north face route is a good moderate outing to a nice summit.

Getting There 

Traverse from Steamboat across the saddle towards Princess/Tisha. Once near Tisha, have to scramble atop a large ledge running along the east side of Tisha, which takes you to the north side and the route.

Climbing Season
