This peak is #15 on the Height List for Northwest Territories . This peak is #72 in Prominence List for Northwest Territories .This well-named hunk of granite has always reminded me of Yosemite's Half Dome. It remains one of the most difficult summits in North America to reach. Not many peaks in the world can claim a 24 pitch route with 7 pitches of 5.12 as their easiest free route! To reach all routes (except Northeast Face) you must cross a difficult snow/ice col ("What Notch") from Fairy Meadows (FA Southeast Face), or bushwhack up Brintnell Creek from Glacier Lake and up the proper drainage (12-13 hours going down), or fly in directly by helicopter (all recent ascents). For a photo of the Southeast Face with routes drawn in, see Rock and Ice #76, Dec 1996, p. 28.
