|North of Hell Raving Creek, SE of the upper Klinaklini R, and W and NW of upper Mosley Ck lies an extended region of high terrain: the NE Pantheon Range. This is wonderfully meadowed on the N flanks, and makes superb hiking country.
The central drainage (to the N, into Klinaklini R) is Flyshacker Ck. Its SE'ern tributary is Coleman Ck; the un-named SW'ern tributary drains what is locally known as "Glacier Lake". The highest summit in the region lies between the heads of "Glacier" and Flyshacker Cks, and carries a significant glacier on its NE side.|
The actual peak has two sizeable glaciers on its eastern slopes, which drain north. It is a complex shaped mountain, with a long curved north ridge, a long south ridge with many subpeaks, and long east and west ridges.
Name Notes: The name is an abbreviation of Klin ak lina. If was at one time referred to in Bivouac as Hell Raving Peak, but there was a duplicate.
