Located at the head of Maybird Gulch, this steep and majestic peak holds an obvious attraction for mountaineers. At 11,326 feet, it is lofty and provides an excellent vista of the surrounding mountains.


The most popular approach is along the Red Pine Trail which also is a popular ski tour. Cross over to Maybird Gulch near the head of the trail. The approximate approach time is three hours. Beware of avalanches.

2. North Ridge II 5.5 *

This ridge is most often approached by a couloir on the left (east), at about one-third height, that leads to the ridge crest. (The lower section of the ridge is much more difficult.) This climb can also be started from Maybird Gulch.

Follow the ridge to the top. This climb is a moderate scramble in summer but is quite challenging in winter. (5.5)
