This peak is #14 on the Height List for British Columbia .The Serra Peaks are a series of 5 dramatic rock spires which rise above the Tiedemann Glacier. The peaks are named from east to west, with Serra 5 the farthest west. The eastern three Serra Peaks are the most frequently climbed; Serras Four and especially Five are difficult to reach. The most common approach is from the Tellot Glacier to the east. The terrain around these peaks is very complex and steep, and drops over 1700m to the Tiedemann Glacier below. Because of the popularity of climbing in this area, many of the features surrounding the peaks have distinct names: for example, Grand Cappuccino, which is an awesome rock tower in a very isolated position high on the south ridge of Serra.

The Serras are very poorly mapped in TRIM. All heights are estimates from terrain photos and altimeter, except Serra III which is a TRIM elevation point.

Name Notes: Serra 4 is the highest of the Serra Peaks. On the map the ridge from Serra 1 to 5 is called "Serra Peaks"
