This named peak is an impressive narrow knife edge of volcanic rock running perpendicular from the Columbia River and is a sub-peak to the range to the south.

The taller nearest tallest neighbor is EL 1,533 and the saddle along the power easement is at EL 980 plus or minus. Mitchell Point is a very sheer knife edge on both sides but the west side is nearly vertical down to the talus pile below. The trail up is class 1 and 2 and accessed by a nifty trail from Lausmann Memorial State Park.
