The Grand Mogul towers above Redfish Lake. Its a complicated peak and route finding is difficult. There has been at least one fatality recorded on the peak. The standard northeast ridge route requires Class 3 climbing and good route finding skills. Recent reports are that the brush in the avalanche chute has clogged the chute.
