Lake Mountain

Elevation: 8,928 ft
Prominence: 488

Climbing and access information for this Salmon River Peak is discussed on page 118.


Lake Mountain is located on the western edge of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness north of Landmark. The peak towers over Pistol Lake. I climbed this peak in 2002. Despite the relatively short access, other than hunting season few people venture into this are of the Salmon River Mountain. While not alpine terrain, it is scenic and wild country.
