Peak 11210 (McIntyre Peak)

Elevation: 11,210 ft
Prominence: 430

Climbing information for this 11er peak is found on page 251.


The book sets forth a route via the peak’s southeast ridge. Since publication I climbed the peak via Big Basin and the peaks north ridge.

North Ridge (Class 3)

Approach the north ridge from scenic Big Basin [Approach (B)(2)(b.2) on page 259 in the book.] Big Basin is easy to traverse all the way to the talus field at the base of the north ridge. Climb the steep, blocky slope to the top of the ridge between Point 11020 and McIntyre Peak. Follow the ridge to the summit.

The following photo essay shows the route.
