North Early Winters Spire is the second highest point in the Liberty Bell Group located just south of Washington Pass on the North Cascades Highway. It is similar in appearance to the South Spire and separated from it by a deep cleft. The easiest route is the Southwest Face at 5.6 plus. Reaching the face from the west via the couloir between the towers can be complicated and involves climbing up to 5.7.
