Ingall's Peak is comprised of three summits, made up of generally good rock. The south peak is the least technical of the three summits. The north ridge is a walk-up, and the south ridge is a short scramble. The north and east peaks are where you want to go for the more technical climbs, but the south peak is only 25 feet lower and has the same great views of Mt Stuart (2 miles distant). The triple summits form the head of three basins, situated at the head of Jack, Fortune, and Ingall's Creeks. The camping areas below the summit are unsurpassed, lying on a series of rock shelves with abundant watercourses and incredible views, dominated by the Mt. Stuart massif. See Beckey's Cascade Alpine Guide for more detailed look at this area's geologic and climbing history.
