The highest summit in the Lake Chelan-Sawtooth Wilderness, Oval Peak does indeed look ovoid when viewed from some directions. With talus as far as the eye can see, scrambling this peak can be frustrating, but reaching the top rewards climbers with views of the craggy peaks surrounding it, including Star, Courtney, and Gray Peaks.
