The Steeple is the prominent spike to the west of The Spires. It has been climbed by a traverse over the western Spires from Gusty Col, continuing over Pt 2507 metres to escape down a steep couloir onto the Reischek Glacier. The climb is prolonged over steep and very loose rock, with some extended unprotected leads.
