This peak is not in the book.


Benedict Peak is located northwest of Glens Peak along a ridge line that projects out between Benedict Creek to the west and Tenlake Basin to the east. The peak has significant prominence and, despite not reaching 10,000 feet, it should be on your peak list. While in the area, consider climbing Peak 9918 which sits above Ingeborg Lake between Benedict Peak and Glens Peak. USGS Mount Everly
