Ascent Trip Report

This is a nice peak to combine with Holland Lookout.
The ridgeline is phenomenal and makes for a fun day! The views into the Swan range are great.
Once in the saddle right below the peak, you can either take the ridge up, or veer left for a more scree-ish ascent which leads you to the summit through a gully. Mostly class 2 with only a few class 3 moves. The rock is quite loose in spots which is usual for the area.
To our surprise, there was a large family of (6-7?) coming up as we descended.
