Description 

This high shy peak presents a hulking presence from Little Lakes Valley, being overshadowed by Bear Creek Spire, the peak however is probably more alpine in character, with quite a large glacier on its eastern side.

The eastern approach follows Little Lakes Valley past Long Lake then up to Treasure Lakes, from there hike scramble up benches to Treasure Saddle (12,480+), just east of the peak. Or one can also approach from Mills Lake, which is accessed from the Ruby Lake cutoff on the way to Mono Pass.
