Mustang Peak

Elevation: 10,980 ft
Prominence: 160

This point is not in the book. It is the rugged [lower] summit of Howard Peak and was not included in the book since no one had reported climbing it last century. Since 2000, a number of fine routes have been climbed on the peak. Use the link below to read Dylan Fadgen’s trip report on the Broken Arrow Arete.

Mustang Peak is a remote point on Howard Peak in the Pioneer Mountains. It is worth a visit because of the technical challenges it offers. Pat McGrane’s Wildhorse Classics Guide is the ultimate reference for technical routes on this peak. John Platt’s trip report will also give you some insight into this complicated summit.
