I've dubbed this one "French Chin" due to being adjacent to, and lower than French Tongue. The peak overlooks Fr Cabin Basin to the north and the broad, flat upper Silver Creek meadow to the south. Could be considered a spur of Kachess Ridge. Class 3 scramble near the summit. North face nearly vertical rock. No name on any maps I've seen.
