This peak is #28 in Prominence List for Montana .Located at the headwaters of the Saint Mary River on the N, and between the headwaters of Harrison and Lincoln Creeks to the S. It is the second highest point between Logan and Marias Passes and is steep on all sides.

It lies amongst the most significant glaciation in Glacier National Park, with the Harrison Glacier below the S face and the Jackson Glacier below the E face. There are also several other smaller remnant glaciers on the mountain.

Best access is most likely the Gunsight Pass Trail which gains Gunsight Pass 1.2km to the NW.
