Nelson and Potterfield write, "... the interesting terrain, high alpine splendor and appealing views are guarded by a long, steep dry approach." The climbing is moderate across a large glacier, finishing with 400 feet of 3rd/4th class scrambling to the summit. This peak is near Diablo Lake off of the North Cascades Highway.
