This is the main summit between Mackenzie Sound, Frederick Sound and Wakeman Sound. It is south of Frederick Sound, north of Mackenzie Sound and west of Wakeman. In form, it is a triple summit with a massive, steep NE face. This face is much less vegetated than suggested on the NTS map and is slashed by a prominent double couloir system forming a V. The right branch of the V is broad and the left branch is much narrower and apparently a bit steeper.

The easiest summit route is probably a bushwack up the SW slopes from Nimmo Bay.
