Peak 6870 is located in North Cascades National Park on the east boundary line. It's situated immediately between Heather Pass and Horsefly Pass, and north of Maple Pass: it's a triple pass peak. It's also between Lake Ann and Lewis Lake. Anyone heading to climb Black Peak via Heather Pass makes a long tedious traverse of the talus/boulder field on the north flank of Peak 6870. 

It is a day hike and scramble from the North Cascades Highway via the Lake Ann / Maple Pass Loop Trail. The Maple Pass Loop Trail is 6.5 miles and a side trip scramble to the summit of Peak 6870 adds less than a half mile.
