Peak 6513 (Payette Point)

Elevation: 6,513 ft

This peak is not in the book


Although, this peak does not have 300 feet of prominence it does have a nice Class 4 summit block as well as outstanding views. It’s located just east of Little Payette Lake. John Platt has climbed this peak many times and produced three trip reports. He notes that

Brian and I climbed it in snow once. We had to dig to find the hand and foot holds on the Class 4 section (it’s really easy Class 4, but as you near the top there’s about a 30 foot fall). It’s all of 15 minutes from the house. . .”

Here are the links to his trip reports:
