Peak 11210 (McIntyre Peak)

Elevation: 11,210 ft
Prominence: 430

Climbing and access information for this peak is on Page 251 of the book.


The book discusses a route via the peak’s Southeast Ridge. Since the publication of the book, I climbed the peak via Big Basin and the peak’s North Ridge. USGS Grays Peak

North Ridge, Class 3

Approach the North Ridge from scenic Big Basin [(B)(2)(b.2) on Page 259]. 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.
