This peak is not in the book. Judi Steciak and Carl Hamke provided the following route information. See their article on the missing Eleveners in the climbing history section of this site. Pat McGrane provided five photos showing the peak and the route. 


Peak 11,090 splits the East Fork Pahsimeroi River into its west and east branches 2.5 miles east of Leatherman Peak.  A cliffband shrouds the base of the mountain’s west side. USGS Leatherman Peak

Access

From the end of the East Fork Pahsimeroi Road (C)(3.2)(p. 294),

Northwest Ridge, Class 2

From your parking spot, wade the East Fork Pahsimeroi River and hike up the Breitenbach Pass trail for about a half-mile.  Leave the trail and head up the west fork until you are below the west face of the peak.  Walk up and follow the base of the cliffs towards the north until you find weaknesses near their twist to the east.  Work up through breaks in the cliffs to easier slopes that lead to the NW ridge.  Follow the ridge to the summit.  Continue past the summit for a view of a natural arch in the convoluted ridge that connects with No Regret Peak.
