DescriptionDicker's Peck, in the notch north of Navajo becomes visible as you hike up the Isabel Glacier trail. You can reach the notch by any of several snow routes with Navajo Snowfield (45 degees) being the most direct. To reach the notch without snow climbing use the East Ledges route on Apache between Navajo Snowfiend and Apache Couloir. (provided the ledges route has melted out)
From the north side of the pinnacle climb about 40 feet to a ledge (easy) and step right to a short crack on the west side of the pinnacle. Climb the crack (5.5) then pull over an easy overhang or go around it further to the right. There is a scrambling route to the summit of Navajo, from which you can descend to Airplane gully. The gully is pretty loose and has an old airplane wreck in it. Airplane gully takes you back to the base of the snow climbs. This is a great climb if you like easy rock in a very alpine setting.
