Peak 11,962. On July 13, 1957 Yvon Chouinard and Bud Ewers finally made the first ascent of this peak, a northern sub-summit of Mount Moran. All four previous parties that had climbed the north ridge of Moran had by-passed it. It is the moderately difficult lower portion of the north ridge, climbed by all the parties, not the easy upper parts, which prevents easy access to this peak.
