Thanks to BOND for adding this peak.

THE NORTH FACE SLOWLY CLIMBS UP GENTLY AND THEN AS YOU COME OUT OF THE TREE LINE TO FACE A HUGE VERTICAL CLIFF FACE WHICH RISES ABOVE THE VILLAGE OF FISCAL THIS CONTINUES TO THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN WITH A BALCONY OF ROCK ABOUT EVERY 100 METERS. THE SOUTH FACE GENTLY SLOPES DOWN BUT HEAVY UNDERGROWTH MAKES IT DIFFICULT TO CLIMB.
