Not much prominence, but a fun challenging climb from the north. The south side is known as the "Keystone Wall".

This view is from the North Fork of Tuttle Creek in late May, 1983. Dave scrambled up the rock near where the snow and rock meet on the right side of the photo. I stayed mainly on the snow ramp leading up to and beyond the right side of the photo, then traversed the ridge to the top. The opposite side of this formation is the Keystone Wall (1983-05-29).
