DescriptionA very good looking pyramid when seen from Upper Treasure Lakes, or the peaks to the east. There is a stunning view down into LeConte Canyon and over to The Citadel from its summit, the summit itself being a narrow ridge with a high point on its western end.
The Northwest Ridge (CL3) is supposed to be a very good scramble.
Standard descent is down the Southeast Slope (CL2).
Getting ThereSomewhat easily reached from a camp at the Lower Treasure Lakes (although the boulder field is very laborious). Follow a faint trail south as if going to Upper Treasure Lakes, but stay in the gully, you'll soon reach a lake at 11,321 ft. This is passed on the left, then go up the gully on the left for the Southeast Slope, or the slope/gully on the right for the Northwest Ridge, and Treasure Col.
