This peak is not in the book.


This 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 ten thousand feet it should be on your list. While in the area consider climbing Peak 9918 which sits above Ingeborg Lake between Benedict and Glens Peak.

Gain the ridge from Ingeborg Lake by making a traverse through the forest to the upper slopes between Benedict Peak and Peak 9918. Follow the ridge to the summit. John Platt reports breathtaking exposure in spots and Dave Pahlas encountered some large boulders to hop over.
