One of the high peaks of the Cascade Pass region. Moderate south facing slopes and loose rock scrambles on the west and east ridges. The north face is the climbers attraction. Steep glacier and snow climbing up to 50 degees. About 1800 -2000 feet of good north face climbing. This peak makes a good 3 day trip.
