Description

This peak has routes ranging from easy mountaineering to big wall and difficult ice. It lies to the north of Mt. Sacagawea.
Three towers rise to the west of the main summit Tower 1 being the most impressive. This is the tower that rises out of Titcomb Basin, for 1,500'. It's sheer, triangular, West Face has routes up to grade V and a difficult ice gully on the north side, between towers 1 and 2.

Getting There

The approach is obvious from the basin.
