Peak 10860 is located just north of the true summit of Devils Bedstead West. The prize of this peak is the shape of the summit ridge. It is a sharp edge with just enough room to sit up top and look down a 1,000-foot drop. The North Ridge could possibly make for a great scramble, but there are sections of unbroken rock that may cause trouble. I would have attempted it but I had my dogs with me. USGS Phi Kappa Mountain

Access

Approach the basin via Summit Creek Trail [(A)(3)(a) on Page 258] or the Kane/Summit Connector Trail, Right Fork Kane Creek [(A)(4)(a) on Page 258].

Northwest Face, Class 3

The route follows a faintly-defined ridge up a stable boulder field (Class 2+). The favorable path will lead you to small notch in the summit ridge. From there, it’s about 200 vertical feet of easy Class 3 climbing to the summit.
