Description

This is an officially named mountain but is really the high point of a spur extending east from The Divide, just south of Mt. Alice. Two routes climb the south-facing wall, and the 5th class West Ridge is an easy way to add this summit to a Mt. Alice adventure.

The solitude of this summit is worth the effort.

Getting There

From the Wild Basin trailhead, follow the trail to the west side of Thunder Lake, and then veer north up to Falcon Lake, directly below the peak. Tip: just before you reach the bridge crossing the creek at the base of the Calypso Cascades, about 1.3 miles in, there is a right turn one can take that shaves 1 mile or so off of the approach. The sign only suggests access to backcountry campsites, but the trail actually follows the creek all the way up to reconnect with the main trail.
