Elevation: 10,536 ft
This peak is not in the book.
Peak 10536 is the northernmost summit on the ridge that divides the Lake Creek and Muldoon drainages at the southern end of Copper Basin. Access Peak 10536’s summit from either drainage, or traverse the ridge from Atlas Peak, located roughly 1 mile south.
The peak can be accessed from the west via Muldoon Canyon, located west of Star Hope Campground, in Copper Basin. The Copper Basin Loop Road, either direction, takes you to FS 510 at the loop’s southern end.
The peak can also be accessed from the east from the Lake Creek Recreation site, just off of the Copper Basin Loop Road.

Western Approach, Class 2+
Using the ascent of Peak 11536 described on the loop route page, and descending the same route, would be a steep climb, with good footing. If you climb the outcrops versus skirting them, the climb might be considered a low Class 3.
