Elevation: 9,220 ft
Climbing and access information for this named peak is on Pages 339-340 of the book. The Board of Geographic Names placed the name, I believe mistakenly, on this point rather than on the 9,449-foot point just to its south. This website has identified that point as Needle Peak HP.
