Sweat Spire

Featured photo of Sweat Spire

This peak is a narrow spire as seen from Surprise Basin. There is an obvious crack up the west side of the spire that leads right to the top. This is some of the more solid climbing in the Olympics. Refer to the Climbers Guide to the Olympics for greater details. Great climbing and a fun beautiful approach. My climbing Partner was John Myers.
