This promiment Feature is a subpeak of the Thunder Butte Rdige and is distinctive in that is makes a vertical wall around the cap. I measured approximately 160 feet rise from the saddle but the saddle is poorly defined series of ridges. The topo suggests the rise might be more in line with 180 feet. In any event, the feature has more rock and good scrambling and very open views so is a worth the effort to climb if going for the county HP to the North as an enjoyable extra credit summit.
