Description

A nice alpine peak that's loaded with potential. The South face, above the Wall Street Glacier, is about 3,400 feet high. There have been three routes done so far and another failed attempt that came very close to topping out. See the 2011 AAJ for more info.

Getting There

It's a long appproach no matter which way you go. Peters Creek is is easiest but also the longest. Crossing Eklutna Lake and going over the pass between Benign and Beehaven is a shorter option. It's possible to go up the Fears Tears gully, also from Eklutna, and over the saddle between Benign and Bellicose. Approaching from the Ram valley is another option.
