It is situated on the Mohlesi ridge of the Drakensberg/Maloti mountains, north of Sani Pass. It stands at 3482 m high. The peak is usually climbed by groups completing a Grand Traverse of the Drakensberg - even though the peak is technically in the Maloti Mountains. The peak is often also climbed from Sani Top Chalet or from Vergelegen Nature Reserve.
