Gabes Peak is a minor, tooth-shaped summit found west of Granite Peak and the Snowbank Mountain Road. It is a great perch for surveying the Sierra Nevada-like meadows on the west side of the ridge crest. The country between Gabes Peak and Snowbank Mountain Road is mostly open and easy to traverse despite the fact that the trail system shown on the maps is either nonexistent or confused by multiple cattle trails. The trail that traverses the peak’s South Slopes can be found as you get closer to the summit. Climb the peak from the trail via its Southeast Slopes. Class 2. USGS Tripod Peak
