Clean prominence of course. This peak is just "down" the ridge from Eagle Cap, and we did it as part of our cross-country route back down from Eagle Cap to our camp at Frazier Lake. The name comes from it's position just above Glacier Lake. It was featured on the cover of an old Oregon hiking guide, no less, which is probably why we wanted to climb the thing when we did way back there in '77.
