The W and SW subpeaks of this entry form the head of the Skmalts Naxwexnt Glacier, which drains N to Chilko Lake east of Chilko Mtn via Ramose Creek and Edmond Creek. It shares a col with the Npigwq Glacier which is N of the main entry and between it and the northern subpeaks; the Npigwq Glacier drains to Edmond Creek. There is a separate icefield/glacier on the N side of 2559m NW subpeak, and another N of the ~2570-2575m northern subpeaks; all are tributary to Edmond Creek.

Name Notes: Ralph ("Rafe") was active in the BCMC from the 1950s into the 1970s and remained a member until his death some years ago. He made some dozen first ascents, among them Raleigh, Compton and Toba, Tisiphone (all in the Coast Mtns) and Mt Harrison in the Rockies. He was also on the first Canadian ascent of Denali. Rafe was a lawyer by profession and later a Superme Court of BC judge. The summit has decent view of some of his best first ascents, including Mt Raleigh.
