The Clapper

Elevation: 10,740 ft
Prominence: 480

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 307 of the book.


The Clapper is overshadowed by it giant neighbor, Bell Mountain. Nevertheless, it is a worthy goal. Larry Prescott’s trip report, linked below, provides great photos and additional ascent information which will help get you to the summit. The climb is Class 2 via its Southwest Ridge. The Clapper has been climbed by a group that traversed over from Bell Mountain. This group descended Bell’s Class 3 South Ridge, then crossed the talus slopes below its east face to reach the ridge connecting the two peaks. They then climbed up the Clapper’s northwest ridge.  USGS Bell Mountain
