Bear Pete Mountain

Elevation: 8,752 ft
Prominence: 2,332

Climbing and access information for this p2k peak is discussed on page 111. Updated April 2019


Bear Pete Mountain was named after Peter “Bear Pete” Brockenau. He earned his nickname as a result of his never ending repertoire of bear stories. This is an imposing summit with great 360 views.

I climbed this prominent peak with John Platt and Brian Wright in 2009. Although, as described in the book, the summit is reached by trail, we climbed the southeast ridge (visible on the left hand side of the photo below). This ridge is Class 2 to 3 depending on the line you choose.
