The prominent peak as one heads up the Jackass Pass trail to the Cirque of Towers, on the West side of the approach just before Warbonnet Peak. It has a number of routes on it, that would make good half day outings, with relatively easy approaches from Big Sandy. The camping is good below the peak in the area just above the switchbacks out of Big Sandy Lake. Not nearly as crowded as Big Sandy or the Cirque.
From Big Sandy Lake, look for the peak to the west, and approach up the slope about 1/4 mile beyond the switchbacks out of the lake. This is just about before the stream crossing below the second big climb on the trail. Good camping can be had on the hills above here.
