Hawley Mountain

Elevation: 9,752 ft
Prominence: 2,812

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Pages 287-288 of the book.


I have climbed Hawley Mountain 3 times–twice under a full moon in August. It’s a much harder climb than it looks from the base. The peak offers great views from the top. Hawley Mountain is often free of deep snow in early Spring. The 2 routes in the book (Northwest Ridge and Northeast Ridge) are the only routes that I have climbed. While the peak can be climbed from many other directions, these 2 routes offer the best access. USGS Hawley Mountain
