Gabes Peak

Elevation: 7,655 ft
Prominence: 148

Climbing information for this peak is found on page 106.


Gabes Peak is a minor, tooth-shaped summit found west of Granite Peak and the Snowbank Mountain Road. While it has only 148 feet of prominence, it is a great perch for surveying the Sierra Nevada-like meadows on the west side of the crest.

The country between the 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 southern slopes can be found as you get closer to the summit. Climb the peak from the trail via its southeastern slopes. Class 2.
