Peak 9610 (The Black Tower)

Elevation: 9,610 ft
Prominence: 430

This peak is not in the book.


The Black Tower is located due east of Cabin Creek Peak and just south of Crimson Lake in the Tango Peaks. I hate to admit it but on my two trips into the area, other than photographing it, I completely ignored it. Given the fine climbing I found on Cabin Creek Peak, I am surprised that I did not even do a recon. The peak has fine lines and I believe the only routes on it are Class 5 but this is all speculation. Look at the photo and judge for yourself. USGS Knapp Lakes
