W. A. McIntyre and O. J. Smith made the first ascent of record on July 11, 1964. From Miriam Lake [(C)(3.1)(b) on Page 274], they “Came up the draw from inlet of lake, then along ridge from east to west. Used rope twice along knife edge of ridge.” They suggested the name “Merriam Peak,” but a summit in the White Cloud Mountains already bears that moniker. Class 4. USGS Elkhorn Creek
