Golden Lake Peak is located due south of Golden Lake in the Lick Creek Range. The Northeast Ridge and South Ridge are both Class 2+. Use the link below to read John Platt’s trip report. John reports: “You can also climb this peak from Golden Lake. Hence the name. The area on the right with the red is extremely scenic (see second photo), and there appears to be a scramble ramp going right up from there.” USGS Fitsum Summit
Getting to Golden Lake Peak is interesting. There is a fisherman’s trail, but it’s a little hard to find. Once on it, it’s about 1,900 feet of elevation gain in 1.3 miles. Calf-stretcher!
