This peak is not in the book.
This peak has been called “Roundup Peak” but the name is not official and it is not related to the popular weed and grass killer. Instead the name commemorates the annual cattle roundup that has taken place in Copper Basin for over 100 years. The peak is located on a connecting ridge northwest of Copper Basin Knob.
Roundup Peak towers over the enterance to the north side of the Lake Creek drainage. From Lake Creek the peak presents a wall of steep talus crowned by impressive broken towers. I recommend climbing the peak via its broad west ridge which is easily accessed from the Copper Basin Loop Road. The ridge is a mix of forest and meadow that climbs steadily to treeline with only an occasional downed tree to block your way. Above treeline the route continues with good footing to the summit. There was no register in 2015.
