With an elevation of 2,195 metres (7,201 ft) above sea level, the mountain is the third-highest mountain on mainland Australia. It is located 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) north-east of Mount Kosciuszko.[4]

The mountain is large but unimposing, and has good and far-reaching views over Blue Lake Cirque and the Western Falls. Despite being relatively accessible by track, it is rarely visited.[5] The mountain forms a watershed for the Snowy River to the southeast and the Geehi River to the northwest.[1]
