Description 

This spire is to the climber's left (west) of the Otis Flower Tower.

The spire has been climbed before. I could not find a name for it, so we dubbed it "The Piton Spire."

To be filled in.


Getting There 

From Glacier Gorge, go up to The Loch (~2.7 miles). Skirt the Loch on the right (north) side. Head up right on the Andrews Glacier Trail past Andrews Tarn (~3.5 miles). The first spires you see on the right are Wham and Zowie. Further downhill is the Loch Vale Pinnacle. Next are Solar Wall, Otis Flower Tower, and Piton Spire. Expect 1+ hours for the approach.

To be filled in.
