Litner Peak/Litner Group

Elevation: 8,837 ft

This peak is found on page 123.


Litner Peak is the highest point in the Litner Group; it is located at the west end of Ship Island Lake [Approach: (H)(4.12)(c) and (d)]. 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 rest solely on the granites distance from civilization. Just getting to the trailhead will take you hours. Once you are at the trailhead, it will take you more than ten miles of walking to reach the beginning of the Litner granite. Please let me know if you visit the area.

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.
