Summary: We establish that the continuous spectrum of the Neumann problem for the system of elasticity equations occupies the entire closed positive real semiaxis in the case that a three-dimensional body with a sharp-spiked cusp whose cross-section contracts to a point with the velocity $$O(r^{1+\gamma})$$, where $$r$$ is the distance to the vertex of the spike and $$\gamma > 1$$ is the sharpness exponent.
