Thanks to Erik Packard and theyogiclimber for contributing to these details. (View history)

An impressive and daunting looking peak when approached from the east(the normal approach). Once below the peak the standard route goes up a gully just east of the pyramidal summit. The gully is known as Airplane Gully and the remains of a plane crash are visible almost the entire length of the gully, with the majority of the airplane near the ridge. Once on the ridge it continues to be an easy climb until the last 40 feet where access up a crack puts one on the summit. The crack is 3rd class.
