While there are other routes on the peak, up to about 5.9, and all sides, 95% of the ascents or more are on the Northwest ridge.
Unlike many alpine rock climbs in the BC interior, this one requires no glacier travel and while many do bivy at the base, it can be done in a day car-to-car.
First ascent of the peak was by Emil Huber, Carl Sulzer, and Harry Cooper in 1890 via the SW face.

It's about a 630km drive from Vancouver or 350km drive from Calgary. It could be accessed from the US via a variety of routes aiming more-or-less north from either Coeur d'Alene or Spokane (about 560km or 350miles from either).
