Shaw Spire. This free-standing pinnacle at the head of George Creek, nestled under the east face of Mount Barnard, was ascended for the first time in March by Jerry Gregg and me. The arduous 6000-foot approach begins in the Owens Valley below Mount Williamson. Our seven pitches of climbing started at 12,000 feet on the southeast arête. NCCS III, F8.
