Braxon Peak can be climbed in a day from the Redfish Lake area. I recommend taking the shuttle boat (make arrangements at the Redfish Lodge) across the lake to cut many miles off your trip. The route up Braxon climbs steeply at first and then leads into the cirque below it and Quartzite Peak (photos below). This peak is a gem.
