From Perfect Pass or Wiley Lake, identify the highest summit on the east side of the massif. The glacier is traversed at the 7,000-7,200 level depending on crevasses. A bergshrund is passed followed by steeper exposed snow. The final rock summit goes in one pitch of 5.5 (currently fixed protection).


Located on the highest summit of Mt. Challenger above the Challenger Glacier.


A few alpine draws, one or two cams if old pitons are not your thing.
