Spearhead perches above Glacier Gorge, an alpine basin flanked by ridges and cliffs, carpeted with meadows and forests, and dotted with lakes. The Spearhead lifts its pointed 12,575-foot-high summit above an 800-foot-high northeast face. This granite wall, dwarfed by surrounding peaks, is climber friendly, seamed with vertical cracks and dihedrals, and covered with incut handholds and flakes. Numerous great climbs up to nine pitches long ascend the concave wall, offering superb climbing in a remote setting.
