Description

This beautiful peak has a number of very interesting possibilities for the adventurous and hardy soul looking for technical lines. The early season probably provides easiest access, but the truly hardy may go mid-winter or late winter. Deep snows may guard this area from ordinary climbers. Late season may allow for alternative adventures.

Venture here with caution and elan.

Getting There

Approach via Glacier Gorge Trailhead, Mills' Lake, Black Lake, and now it gets interesting.
