Martin Mountain

Elevation: 9,423 ft
Prominence: 443

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 132 of the book.


Martin Mountain is found at the north end of ridge complex that begins at Sleeping Deer Mountain. At one time, a fire lookout was located on the peak’s [lower] North Summit. The book used the elevation for the North Summit. The elevation of the high point of Martin Mountain is 9,423 feet. The trail to the lookout crosses over the South Slopes of the North Summit and it is an easy walk up the slope to the high point. Additionally, it would be an easy journey to simply follow ridge between the two summits to reach the high point. The summit is crowned by a rock fin. Climbing the short fin makes this a Class 3 climb.

The shortest access to this peak is via the Sleeping Deer Mountain Road. It is 8.5 up-and-down miles via trail to the summit. See the Sleeping Deer Mountain page for more access information. It’s also easy to climb Peak 9553 as the trail passes near its summit. USGS Sleeping Deer Mountain
