Located on the divide between Powell Lake and Toba Inlet. This peak is right on the divide. Note that on old 1:50,000 maps, it is wrongly marked with a higher spot height than its parent Pilldolla (peak 6460) two km NE.

Name Notes: Named according to the "pill" (chinook jargon for "red" theme of the area. A literal translation would be "red Box". The name of the creek south of this peak and its higher neighbour is from the Chinook Jargon: "pil" (red) + "dolla" (dollar, money); loosely translated "blood money" ("blood" is usually "pil-pil").
