Thanks to Max Karren and Terrill Thompson for contributing to these details. (View history)

The top of the mountain is windblown and very bare, lower slopes under the summit are deep with snow. Nearby are some very nice Yurts for making a good base camp. The area's sunsets are beautiful. Nearby rise two other large peaks Mount Holly and Mount Baldy.
