The unnamed peak 2 km NE of Mt. Olive. This peak and the headwall immediately to its west brood over the approach route to Bow Hut. The unofficial name is given for the peak's proximity to Vulture Glacier. The avalanche pictured in the photo on the cover of Tony Daffern's "Avalanche Safety for Skiers and Climbers" fell from the headwall just west of the peak.
