A heavily used subpeak of Mount Morrison that has an established USGS BM elevation. Based on the obvious use of the side trail to this feature, it is visited often to provide views of the western basin of Morrison that the main approach trail does not provide. The saddle is measured at only 55 below the peak so the feature has little prominence and may not be worth "promoting" although it is visited often.
