Another Lick Creek Range peak scoped out by John Platt. This peak sits directly south of Pearl Peak. The mountain is typical of Lick Creek Range Peaks with lots of exposed granite, slopes with burned trees both standing and fallen and a vertical north face.
The easiest access is from the west. Follow the Warren Wagon Road [(B)(2)] to a signed turnoff for the Crestline Trailhead this rough road leads 7.0 miles to a trailhead at 7,200 feet west of Black Pearl Peak. From the trailhead an unmarked trail leads north in a round about manner just west of the base of Black Pearl Peak. Follow the trail to the base of Black Pearl. The peak’s west face can be climbed via a number of different lines. We climbed the main gully that cuts the face. See John Platt’s trip report.
