This newly popular peak is accessed by a rebuilt hiking trail that offers easy and pleasant access to an open summit with expansive and scenic views of the surrounding area, including Glacier Peak, the Monte Cristo peaks, Sloan, Three Fingers, Index, Baring, Gunn, Daniel, Hinman, Baker, and many others.

This peak is not the highest on the Becker Peak massif, however. A rugged monolith in the center of Beckler's craggy crest is a few feet higher than the peak reached by the trail. The terrain is very difficlut on this crest and accessing the monolith and climbing it are for experienced scramblers only. Many parties will need a rope to gain the high point.

Despite its low prominence, this popular summit is still referred to as "Becker Peak" on this site, since most hikers who reach this summit don't care that a nearby crag is technically a bit higher. They are happy to revel in the scenery, enjoying the fun journey to what they assume is the real Beckler Peak.
