To the south, the icefield is drained by the Scud River, which flows into the Stikine. The peaks in this area are visible from the Edziza plateau, which is about 50km northeast of these glaciated peaks, across the deep valley of Mess Creek. There is a reference in 1995 CAJ that says Ambition had been previously climbed.”
