Loch Vale, one of Rocky Mountain National Park’s most scenic spots, descends northeast from the Continental Divide, dropping past alpine tarns and dense evergreen forests. Icy Brook, originating from Taylor Glacier, traverses the valley floor, tumbling over cliffs and twisting through meadows. The upper valley is lined on the north by the Cathedral Spires, a collection of rocky summits and faces including Cathedral Wall and farther west, a bunch of spires—Sharkstooth, Petit Grepon, The Saber, and The Foil. The Petit Grepon is the most beautiful of these spires. This amazing semidetached pinnacle, flanked by Sharkstooth and The Saber, offers an 800-foot-high South Face that culminates with an airy postage-stamp summit, a flat rectangle 10 feet wideand 25 feet long.
