Crescent Spire's gentle summit resembles more a dome than a spire. It's located just east of the central Vowell Glacier, about 1 km northeast of the Bugaboo Spire. Most of the technical routes are on the south face. Just east of Crescent Spire are four subpeaks known as the Crescent Towers. These offer more technical challenges although many routes are covered in moss.
Name Notes: Named in 1933 by James Monroe Thorington because he was impressed with its shape.
