Lions Head

Elevation: 7,288 ft
Prominence: 1,388

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 38 of the book.


I have not climbed this peak. The route information contained in the book came from Neil McAvoy, who made the first ascent in 1964. I note that there is a SummitPost entry for this peak that is critical of the book entry, calling it completely wrong. As I noted in the book on Page 33, “I believe climbing should both be an adventure and a test of our skills.” The SummitPost author evidently had an adventure and proved his or her skill. Clearly, if you need more detail, visit the SummitPost entry. It is part of a nice, well-written article on the Selkirk Mountains. USGS Smith Peak
