This peak is easy to see from the hairpin turn on the North Cascades Highway. As you travel east on Highway 20, just after the Washington Pass crest, the road makes a hairpin turn left before descending to Winthrop.
Park your car here for access to this scramble. There is a bootpath or trail that threads its way up some 1,500 feet before reaching Kangaroo Pass at 6671 feet. On the lower portion, cairns aid hikers, bringing you us to snowpack around 5,800 feet.
At the pass, ascend the southwest ridge, weaving your way between the northern and southern edges. At about 7,400 feet, swing around to the southern flank for a final ascent up a south-facing gully.
Careful on your return, descend the gully and work your way around to reconnect with Kangaroo Pass.
