Gilmore Peak

Elevation: 10,748 ft
Prominence: 608

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 304 of the book.


I climbed this peak on September 25, 2000 in Winter-like conditions and again in the Summer of 2013. The Forest Service trail from Leadore Lake to the ridgeline north of the peak was in good shape in 2013. Once on the peak’s North Ridge, a good game trail follows the West Side of the ridge almost to the peak’s [lower] West Summit. Drop down to the saddle that connects the two summits and then climb across Class 3 blocks to the summit. The peak’s East Summit appears to be as high, if not higher, than the West Summit.
