Sunny west face. More than average tourist/gawker travel than most areas in the Spires due to it being right next to the main Cathedral Spires trail. Sharp is directly north of Grace Note Spire and the second summit on the formation west(downhill) of Khayyam Spire.
Park in the Cathedral Spires parking lot and take the main trail to the Spires. When you see the sheer yellow wall of Khayyam Spire use the above description to locate the rock.
