Thanks to Art McCarthy for adding this peak.

UTM 557115. Was originally called Mount Powell, but due to mapping error in it had to be renamed to Point Powell. This peak is very aesthetic and has numerous routes from class 2 to III 5.10

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Point Powell in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.

    Beautiful Peak! Excellent class 2-3 climb up the Northeast Chute. I was able to solo this route in 3 hours from our basecamp on the Thompson Glacier.
