This peak (or really ridgeline of McHenry's Peak) has terrific rock routes and at least two mixed routes, one on the south side and one on the north side.

Expect deep snows in anything but very early season.

The location is stupendous. The rock on the south side is inviting.

Getting There 

Approach via Glacier Gorge Trailhead, Mills' Lake, Black Lake (or Solitude Lake). Deep snow may frustrate the ill-prepared.

Climbing Season

For the Glacier Gorge area.

Weather station 7.8 miles from here
