Corner Shot Peak

Elevation: 10,940 ft
Prominence: 680

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 268 of the book. The book lists the elevation at 10,925 feet. Newer estimates put the elevation at 10,940 feet. I added Brett Sergenian’s photo of the upper route and his GPS track which starts from the Arentson Gulch and which shows the East Headwall Route set out in the book. Brett’s trip report is linked below. Updated December 2019


Rick Baugher named this peak based on how it looks when viewed from US-93: tucked into the corner of the Pahsimeroi Range. Rick climbed the peak in 1994 and found no evidence of previous ascent after encountering a short, exposed Class 3 section near the top. USGS Grouse Creek Mountain
