Its East Buttress route (roughly 3,600 feet/1,100 m high) is a classic hard rock climbing route. Due to the remoteness of the range and the usually terrible weather, this peak has seen only a few ascents. The first ascent of the peak was in 1976 by Russell McLean and Charlie Porter (fresh from the first solo of the Cassin Ridge on Denali).
