Black Pearl Peak is 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 Warren Wagon Road [(B)(2) on Page 135] 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 heads north in a roundabout 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. USGS Box Lake
