This peak is Mount Wilson's little brother. Although there is extensive exposed rock, comparatively little activity has been recorded. The main cliff forms a high wall wrapping from the east to the northern side of the peak. The Blood Wall is a long reddish wall beneath the western ridge, high above Oak Creek Canyon. The lower cliff tiers on the east and north sides contain cragging routes on smaller outcrops. The Triad and Afterburner walls, as well as the League of Notions, are in this area.
Approach using either the old Oak Creek road, or the new trail. There is some benefit to using the standard Oak Creek Trail, because this is the normal route of descent.
