West McMillan Spire offers a moderate, relatively non-technical climb in the otherwise daunting Southern Pickets. Look for extraordinary views of Mt. Terror, Mt. Fury, Luna Peak, and the rest of the wild Picket Range and much of the North Cascades. The approach, however, is notoriously demanding. Bring your camera!
