Located in the Massive Range between Mount Brett and Copper Mountain on the west side of the Trans Canada Highway. There is a difficult rated scramble which uses the northwest slopes and ridge, but is only difficult once the ridge proper is attained at the pinnacle where the real scrambling starts. Approach using the Red Earth Creek Fire Road then head up one of the drainages to the northwest slopes. The pinnacle and ridge are obvious as you ascend.
Named in 1884 by George M. Dawson because it is visible from long distances down the Bow Valley and was used as a reference for travellers to know their position in the valley.
