In the cyclic Towers of Hanoi problem, the discs may only move in a clockwise direction from a source peg to a specified peg subject to the usual restrictions of the standard problem. An iterative solution to the modified problem is presented. A number of observations that lead to the construction of an iterative algorithm is also discussed.
