Litner Peak

Elevation: 8,837 ft
Prominence: 657

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 123 of the book.


Litner Peak is the highest point in the Litner Group. It is located at the west end of Ship Island Lake [FST-030 (H)(4.1.1.1) (a.2.1) on Page 144]. Little is known about the route. The first ascent was by L. Hales and P. Schoening in 1955. As you will see from the two photos below, the Litner Group should be a rock climbers’ paradise. The fact that it is not rests solely on its distance from civilization. Just getting to the trailhead takes hours. Once you are at the trailhead, it demands more than 10 miles of walking to reach the beginning of the Litner granite. Please let me know if you visit the area. USGS Aggipah Mountain

This photo by Jay Krajic is the best I know of. It not only shows good details of Litner formations and peak's but it also shows the ragged ridge on the south side of the canyon. Jay Krajic Photo

This photo has a bit steeper angle. The Litner Group of granite formations is an enticing looking group of granite formations. I have never met a climber who had visited the area.
